NASP 2010 SUMMER CONFERENCES

For many school psychologists, summer is an ideal time to devote more than a few hours to continuing professional development. Some colleagues are finding this more of an issue as a result of budget and travel restrictions during the regular school year. We all need professional development that is affordable, logistically doable, and highly relevant to our work. Keeping our skills up to date has never been more important. The summer conference series offers cutting edge, highly concentrated, and advanced-level professional development in a relaxed setting. Both host cities, Denver and Nashville, offer plenty of great restaurants and entertainment, terrific outdoor summer fun, and easy access.

CONCENTRATED, NASP APPROVED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, INCLUDING ETHICS

Now in their 7th year, the NASP summer conferences offer the same level of outstanding professional development found at our annual convention, only in a more intimate context and over summer break. Both conferences focus on issues and skills critical to our profession. All sessions during the 3-day conferences (18 credit hours each) are NASP, APA, and NBCC approved. Registration fees include extensive handout materials, daily lunch and breaks, Tuesday evening networking reception, and a certificate of attendance attesting to CPD credits earned. Additionally, each conference offers a session on ethics (3 credit hours), a requirement in most states and for nationally certified school psychologists.

As in previous years, summer conference participants will have the option of attending one of two full-day preconference workshops on Monday. The conferences will consist of 3-hour general plenary sessions on Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon. Five breakout workshops will be offered on Tuesday afternoon and then repeated Wednesday morning.

PREPaRE TRAINING AVAILABLE

In addition, the NASP PREPaRE workgroup will be offering the core workshops (1 and 2) at the Denver location and both Training of Trainer (ToT) workshops in Nashville. Denver offers the ideal opportunity for anyone interested in beginning or rounding out their PREPaRE training. The ToT workshops being offered in Nashville are for individuals who have completed the corresponding core workshop and want to become PREPaRE trainers. Depending on the workshop taken, participants can combine their PREPaRE training with either the preconference workshop or the summer conference itself.

DENVER, CO: JULY 12-14, 2010
