Call for Continuing Education Workshop

       ICP 2005 Convention:  FOZ DE IGUACU,Brazil

Elizabeth S. Bishop, Ph.D., Continuing Education Committee Chair


The Continuing Education Committee is now soliciting proposals for 2005 from members who plan to attend the Brazil conference. Continuing Education workshops will take place on the first two days of the conference, July 17 and 18, 2005, before the scientific sessions start. We have found that half-day workshops (4 C.E. credits) are much preferred by our members over full-day (8 C.E. credits) workshops but the Committee will consider full-day workshops if that is the best format for your topic. Preference will be given to workshops with a cross-cultural focus, those related to the conference theme, and/or those offered by co-presenters from more than one country.


If you would like to offer a workshop, please submit a proposal by January 15, 2005, which includes the following information:


1.      A description of the content and procedure of your workshop, not to exceed three pages. Please include six (6) objectives, and a list of audio-visual and/or other equipment needed. Please note that ICP may not be able to provide A/V equipment.

2.      On a separate page provide a condensed description of the workshop (100 words). At the top of the page include the title of the workshop, your name, professional affiliation, and your city and country. Also include a 100 word biography of yourself.

3.      A short bibliography relevant to your presentation.

4.      A brief vita for each presenter (if there is more than one). Include previous experience, if any,  relevant to presenting workshops.


Workshop presenters will be expected to register for the conference. There will be one free conference registration per workshop. If there are multiple presenters they may divide up the one free conference registration but there will not be more than one free registration per workshop presented. ICP will give continuing education credit to workshop participants in accordance with standards set by the American Psychological Association (APA). While APA has given approval to ICP to offer continuing education for psychologists, ICP maintains responsibility for the programs.


Those wishing to submit proposals can do so by mail, fax, or email. Send your proposal to: Dr. Beth Hedva, CE Chair, 6408 Bow Crescent NW, Calgary, AB Canada T3B 2B9 or fax to ++403-247-2545 or email to Since the chair of the CE Committee is changing January 1, 2005, before that date please contact Dr. Elizabeth Bishop at if you have any questions. We look forward to receiving and reviewing your proposals and to having you present CE Workshops in Brazil in 2005..
