Submit A Session

The MPA Education and Training Committee is accepting proposals for presentations during the 2018 calendar year.  Review of proposals will begin July 1, 2017 and will continue until the 2018 MPA Continuing Education schedule is completed. 

The Education and Training Committee accepts proposals throughout the year.  We are especially looking for proposals related to the health care system, diversity, cultural competence and research/evidence-based clinical topics across the lifespan.  Proposals from MPA members and non-members alike are welcome.  Notification of decisions on proposal acceptance will occur within three (3) months of submission.

Friday Forums are three-hour training sessions held in the Twin Cities that focus on clinical practice issues.  Other Continuing Education programs may include full-day conferences and special programs and workshops.  The audience includes a variety of mental health professionals/practitioners. Presenters receive a $250 stipend for their Friday Forum program.  

MPA is an approved continuing education sponsor for the APA and each section of information is required. A resume or curriculum vitae for each presenter needs to accompany the proposal.
