Serving the Graduate Psychology Community since 2003

A letter from the President

January 16, 2015


Dear ACEPT Community,

The end of 2014 leading into this new year was hard on many of us as we, as individuals and as a psychological community, were impacted by the events in Ferguson and New York. The stories of Michael and Eric are not unfamiliar to what we have heard and seen happen to members of some of our Chicago communities, and they have certainly left some heavy, overwhelming feelings. But seeing people across the country come together in protest and action has also been positively overwhelming. I hope that we as a training community can openly talk about how, our students, or clients have been impacted by these recent events. The 2015 year is the year of the Sheep/Goat according to the Chinese calendar and it is reported to bring a spring in which there are opportunities to use our creativity and diligence to bring about change. I hope that this new year brings positive change for all of you, and for our communities!

A couple of upcoming reminders:

  • The next general meeting will be on February 6, 2015, at Adler University (formerly Adler School of Professional Psychology) located at 17 N. Dearborn St, in room 16-118. Please come to the 15th floor lobby to sign in. A brown bag lunch and professional consultation hour starts at 12pm noon. The business meeting begins at 1pm, and at 2pm we will be collaborating in a working meeting to continue our discussion of reference letters, and development of a standardized reference letter for practicum applications.

  • The 3rd ACEPT Annual Conference will be on May 15, 2015 at Loyola University (loop campus) and the Keynote speaker will be Dr. Jill Gardener.

Please check out the ACEPT website for information about the organization and past or future events!

I hope to see you in February!
