KPA Membership 

There's no looking back now. 2022 is upon us and KPA is off to the races! We are pleased to have been able to provide great online learning content to you all over the past year and a half. Last year we offered six online continuing education programs, including two conferences. We have held our CE programming remotely, which has been a great success, and will continue to do so in 2022. This April in collaboration with The Trust, we present "Sequence XI: Ethics, Risk Management and Vulnerabilities: Yours, Mine, and Ours." We hope you can join us.

Additionally, our diversity agenda continues to provide access to regular seminars/workshops on multicultural competencies and awareness (e.g., Fall KPA conference), show improvements in diversity membership in recruitment, retention, and leadership roles, and addressing social injustice. This strive for inclusion has resulted in being nominated for the 2022 SPTA Diversity Award sponsored by APA.

Reflecting on 2021, we achieved some important accomplishments on behalf of Kansas Psychologists, including working with the Kansas Legislature to enact PSYPACT legislation. Governor Laura Kelly signed KS SB 170 into law on May 17, 2021, and the legislation will became effective on January 1, 2022. According to https://psypact.site-ym.com/, where you can read more details: 

  • The Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT) is an interstate compact designed to facilitate the practice of telepsychology and the temporary in-person, face-to-face practice of psychology across state boundaries.
  • The PSYPACT Commission is the governing body of PSYPACT responsible for creating and finalizing the Bylaws and Rules and Regulations. The Commission is also responsible for granting psychologists the authority to practice telepsychology and temporary in-person, face-to-face practice of psychology across state boundaries.
  • Telepsychology In order to practice telepsychology in PSYPACT states, psychologists licensed in PSYPACT states only can apply to the PSYPACT Commission for an Authority to Practice Interjurisdictional Telepsychology (APIT). One required component of this authority granted from the PSYPACT Commission is that psychologists must obtain an E.Passport Certificate from ASPPB. 
  • Temporary Practice In order to conduct temporary practice in PSYPACT states, psychologists licensed in PSYPACT states only can apply to the PSYPACT Commission for a Temporary Authorization to Practice (TAP). One required component of this authorization granted from the PSYPACT Commission is that psychologists must apply for and obtain an Interjurisdictional Practice Certificate (IPC) from ASPPB.

In addition to reduced rate on KPA continuing education and legislative advocacy for Kansas Psychologists, some additional KPA membership benefits include:

  • Inclusion in the “Doctor Finder” profile on the KPA website, a service used by fellow members, KPA staff, and the public to locate referrals.
  • Membership listserv to communicate with colleagues for purposes of networking, referrals, and information sharing 
  • Updates by state licensing board, state legislative efforts, and professional endeavors
  • In-person advocacy at the federal level in conjunction with APA Services, Inc.

    KPA is working for you and wants to learn more about your needs as a psychologist in Kansas! We hope that you will join us once again in 2022 and encourage your colleagues to join us as well. We will continue to be the strong and representative voice of psychology in Kansas and hope to have many more voices added this coming year.

    If you have questions about how to proceed, please feel free to email admin@kspsych.org.

    Looking forward to working with you in 2022!

    Sincerely,
    Jason Malousek, PsyD -2022 KPA President
