The 16th annual Rehabilitation Psychology continuing education program is organized by the American Board of Rehabilitation Psychology (ABRP) and the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology (Division 22) of the American Psychological Association (APA). As noted on the Division 22 website, Rehabilitation Psychology is a specialty area within psychology that focuses on the study and application of psychological knowledge and skills on behalf of individuals with disabilities and chronic health conditions in order to maximize health and welfare, independence and choice, functional abilities, and social role participation across the lifespan. This conference is specifically designed to provide the opportunity for Rehabilitation Psychologists to network and to enhance their knowledge and skills across the broad range of activities that they participate in.
Specific program content is being developed by the program committee for the 2014 Rehabilitation Conference in the areas of: translational research methods; outcomes measurement; evidenced-based practice; diversification of clinical practice; training and supervision; professional development; and legal and ethical issues.
