4. Session Purpose*
As psychologists who work in the organizational and leadership development space, we provide a unique value based upon our education, experience, and skills in human relationships, systems, and facilitating meaningful change.
We are optimally equipped to help leaders, organizations, and teams enhance their effectiveness, achieve improved outcomes, increase their relationship and influencing abilities, and maximize people’s potential. Our education, experience, and skills in assessment and intervention are rooted in psychological theory and evidence-based practices.
This is what makes us stand out. Let’s celebrate our uniqueness as psychologists and experts in human behavior as we convene again to connect with and learn from each other. Let’s take the time to explore our roots while discovering what is new in our field.
This year, our mid-winter conference celebrates the enduring lessons that inform the practice of consulting psychology. We honor many of the legends in our field, such as the late Harry Levinson and Edgar Schein, as well as those psychologists that have informed our consulting work, such as Aaron Beck, Carol Dweck, and Daniel Kahneman (to name just a few). We reflect back on their presence in our community and continue to learn from their prolific contributions to our field.
This year, we reflect on the deep roots that anchor the tree of consulting psychology as we continue to grow upward and blossom. Our keynote speakers will each share some of the enduring lessons of leadership that they have experienced in their careers.
Please consider submitting a proposal, nominating a presenter that would add value to this conference, and/or sharing this announcement with colleagues from your network. To stimulate ideas for proposal submissions relevant to the theme, consider the following topics:
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
- Practice and Skill Development
- Research Results
- Stakeholder Well-Being
- Student Resources
- Facilitating meaningful and lasting change in individuals, teams, and organizations
- Uncertainty and Disruption Management
We will always consider proposals in other areas that expand the knowledge base of our profession and align with SCP Values. https://www.societyofconsultingpsychology.org/about-scp/.
Please provide a 275-1000 word outline of the session content and the participants’ experience. This should review the content that will be included and how the presenters will engage the audience. It should also include the approach the presenters will use to ensure (as much as one can) the session will meet the learning objectives. Please be specific.
If you have additional information you would like to submit about your proposal, please upload it here.
Please submit learning objectives for the session. The learning objectives are very important in determining CE eligibility (Reminder: sessions that meet CE eligibility will be given priority in the selection process).
- 3-4 for a session that is under four hours long (most sessions will fall into this category).
Learning Objectives must be observable, quantifiable, and focused on what attendees will be able to do as a result of attending the session that will ultimately better serve the public and enhance the profession.
Acceptable Learning Objectives clearly identify the broader contributions that might support the welfare of the consumer and the Society by addressing ethical and regulatory implications associated with successful business practice. Learning Objectives must also be quantifiable, such as "List at least three," or "Describe at least two ways..."
Please see the CE Guidelines for more detailed information on writing properly worded Learning Objectives, including examples of using quantifiable action verbs (e.g., "Describe at least three," or "Compare and contrast," ) vs. inadequate and vague language (e.g., "will understand” or “will know).
Please provide at least three current (within the last 10 years) empirical or peer-reviewed literature references from the scholarly literature (i.e., generally textbooks are not acceptable) in support of your session’s content or concepts. If included references are authored or co-authored by the session presenter(s), please be sure to note this as a potential conflict of interest later in this application. For more details about what does and does not qualify for literature references, see the CE Guidelines.
If you are not applying for CEs, please put N/A in the box.
Coaching credential(s), if any, and a list of higher education degrees plus institution, and any other relevant credentials. For example: ICF PCC certified, Masters in Business Administration from Wharton.
