Serving the Graduate Psychology Community since 2003

A letter from the President

September 9, 2014

Dear ACEPT Community,

The 2014-15 training year is already underway for all of you, and I hope the enthusiasm of a new training cohort has energized your agency! My hope is to support you in your roles as supervisors and administrators over practicum training over the course of this year, through facilitated discussion of training issues that occur, highlighting issues that affect graduate programs and practicum training nationally, and strengthening professional development opportunities.

For those of you who couldn’t attend the August general ACEPT meeting, Tim Mulligan announced that he is moving to Taipei, Taiwan. He took a position at the Taipei American School. We wish him all the best in his new position and new adventure across the world! Wendy Tai will take over Tim’s position as the practicum coordinator at Valparaiso University counseling center. Rufus Gonzales has generously offered to continue assisting ACEPT with website updates, in Tim’s absence, and eventually teach me to put my 6th grade computer camp skills to use!

A couple of upcoming reminders:

- The next general meeting will be on November 7, 2014 at Argosy Schaumburg, 999 Plaza Dr #111, Schaumburg, IL 60173, in Room 815. A brown bag lunch and professional consultation hour starts at 12pm noon. The business meeting begins at 1pm, and at 2pm Dr. Karen Farrell from Midwestern University will be presenting on the complex multicultural issues involved in treating children, adolescents,  and families where the families have lost custody of their children. 

- The ACEPT practicum fair will be on December 5, 2014 at Roosevelt University.  

- ACEPT membership renewal period is active. Members and new members can update and pay membership fees here.

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

I hope to see many of you in November!
