OPA 2018 Annual Conference

May 4-5, 2018 - Monarch Hotel - Portland, OR

"You Are Important Too!  Focusing on the Well-Being of Psychologists"

Request for Presentations

The call for breakout session presentations is now open.  Please click here to apply to present online.  Please click here for a printable document.

  •  Our conference theme is “You Are Important Too!  Focusing on the Well-Being of Psychologists”.  This conference will focus on the well-being of the psychologist, provider or student, as providers dedicate our time and selves to helping others.  It is equally important to dedicate time to helping ourselves.  We welcome presentations pertaining to self-care, preventing and dealing with burnout, promoting longevity of career work, positive psychology, vicarious traumatization and the like.  Diversity and multicultural issues within psychology are always a key area of importance for the conference and continuing education.  As always, other topics related to psychology are welcome.  All presentations are to run 1.5 hours. 
  •  If you would like to suggest a specific presenter and topic, please e-mail OPA at info@opa.org with that information. 
  •  Psychology students are encouraged to submit their work as well.
  • The deadline to apply is October 13, 2017.
  • Due to the limited number of sessions available during the conference, not all submissions can be accepted. The OPA conference committee will make the selections based on the foundation in evidence, clarity of the proposal, probable interest to participants, feasibility, and space and time constraints.
