2014_CulturalCompetency_260x400 It is my honor to invite you to participate in a dynamic and rich tradition at Georgia State University. On March 13-14, 2014, we will host the 6th Biennial Cultural Competency Conference. Our theme for this year’s conference is “Transforming Ourselves, Transforming Our World: Cultural Competency as a Tool for Change.” In the conference presentations, you will find high quality multicultural training designed to provide the opportunity for in-depth thought and learning for mental health and medical providers as well as educators who work in diverse settings.

In addition to dynamic daytime speakers, this year’s conference features an evening with Keynote speaker, Nikki Giovanni. As the Director of Psychological and Health Services, and a GSU alumna, I look forward to welcoming you to our campus for this amazing professional growth and community building opportunity. I truly believe you will leave feeling renewed, challenged, and better able to serve in a global society because you were with us.

We are proudly coordinating this conference with the 6th Counseling Psychology Conference! The Counseling Psychology Conference dates back to 1951 and was last held in Chicago, IL in 2008. This year, we welcome the 2014 Counseling Psychology Conference to Atlanta! The conference begins Thursday night and is headlined Friday morning by a keynote address from Nadine Kaslow, 2014 APA President, followed by three days of great programming consisting of symposia, workshops, roundtables, poster sessions, and CE sessions. The theme is Counseling Psychology in Action: Future Opportunities and Challenges, with topics of special interest embraced in four sub-themes: Training Contexts, Integrated Health Care/Holistic Health, Violence/Trauma, and Domestic and International Diversity. The conference is sure to bring together domestic and international practitioners, administrators, students, academicians, and others. The conference is being held by Division 17 of the APA – Society of Counseling Psychology, the Association of Counseling Center Training Agencies, and the Council of Counseling Psychology Training Programs (CCPTP). We hope that you will join us in celebrating all that Counseling Psychology has to offer in 2014 and beyond!

We hope to see you there!
