The KPA Board wants you to know we appreciate and need your support as we are busy advocating for psychology in Kansas. A quick look back at 2018 reminds us that the leadership of KPA is committed to working on behalf of Kansas psychologists.

In 2018, Board of Governors of the Kansas Psychological Association continued to vigorously monitor updates and changes to the profession as they affect the landscape of the practice of psychology in Kansas. One way we accomplished this was via KPA’s Legislative Consultant, Whitney Damron, P.A. Whitney helps us track and monitor those issues that both directly and indirectly affect Kansas Psychologists.

Looking ahead into 2019, we will continue to build on the progress we have made and create new relationships that will move psychology forward. Keeping with this theme, many of the leaders of Kansas Psychological Association have been invited by the American Psychological Association to represent Psychology in Kansas at the annual State Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. The culmination of this 2 day meeting is visits to Capitol Hill where we will meet with members of Congress to advocate for psychology at both the state and national level.

Additionally, we are in the process of planning our 2019 Spring and Fall Conferences. The Spring Conference will be held in Kansas City presenting, "Sequence IX: Ethics & Risk Management in Complex Clinical Conundrums" in coordination with The Trust. A full description of the workshop can be found here.

As always, a benefit of renewal is the inclusion in the doctor finder profile on KPA’s website. This service is used by fellow members and KPA staff to locate referrals. Additionally, the public can search for providers in their geographical areas.

KPA is working for you! Please join us for this exciting year!  (And encourage your colleagues).

If you have any questions about how to proceed, please feel free to email admin@kspsych.org or call toll-free (866) 860-7313.
