  1. The main objectives of the CE Committee of Div. 19 include the following: 
    The development of high-quality CE opportunities in association with the APA Convention. We are happy to inform that the APA Office of CE in Psychology approved a preconvention workshop sponsored by Div. 19. The title of this workshop is "Virtual Reality and Biofeedback to Improve Behavioral Health Clinical Research," and it will be presented by LTC Melba C. Stetz, PhD, Raymond A. Folen, PhD, Chelsea L.  Sousa, MS, and Chris M. Enomoto, MBA. This preconvention workshop will be held on Tuesday, July 30, in Honolulu.

  2. Develop high-quality CE opportunities in association with APA-accredited providers of CE. This involves the development of partnership with existing providers of professional CE programs.

  3. Develop high-quality CE opportunities for psychologists who are deployed or serving in remote locations. This involves the development of a network of Div. 19 psychologists with expertise in specific areas of military psychology who are available to provide CE workshops to small groups of psychologists when they travel as part of their work.

The CE Committee encourages members of Div. 19 to provide ideas concerning ways to implement Objectives two and three. Please send your comments to Freddy A. Paniagua, PhD.
