HPA Convention 2010

"Tradition and Vision"

October 29, 2010 
Ala Moana Hotel
Honolulu, O'ahu, Hawai'i

E komo mai!

This year's theme Tradition and Vision will highlight visionary practice models across private and public sectors of psychology, new twists on traditional efforts that place psychologists as key figures in health care service delivery and health care reform, and advocacy to enhance leadership efforts amongst psychologists in order to influence, inform and fulfill our profession’s broad mission. This year’s theme has inspired workshops that cover a broad range of topics that range from entrepreneurship, thriving in private practice, professional practice issues such as cyberspace and learning from the lessons learned by seasoned professionals. The convention topics allow us to reflect on history and traditional practice while at the same time introducing visionary opportunities in order for the profession to continue to blossom and expand into broader areas of service delivery. 

This is not only a time to immerse yourself in the convention’s educational content, but also to meet new colleagues, renew old relationships and rejuvenate and restore yourself. The presentations and events during these two days will be at the Ala Moana Hotel. 

The day will begin with a Town Hall Meeting with Jill Oliveira Gray, Ph.D. (HPA President), Barbara Higa Rogers (HPA President Elect), Rosemary Adam-Terem (Past President), and Craig Robinson, Ph.D. (APA Counsel Representative) is scheduled for early Friday morning. Join in this lively conversation to discuss professional concerns you feel are most important and to help shape the state and national agenda of psychology! 

The winners of the Healthy Workplace Awards (HWA) will be announced at our luncheon. This is the 11th year that the Hawaii Psychological Association (HPA), in cooperation with APA, has established the “Healthy Workplace” Awards in the State of Hawaii.
