Welcome Registration for the
42nd Annual Meeting of the
Society for Descriptive Psychology!
(Note: To register, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Continue" button).
In recognition of COVID-19 and its serious health threats, the annual conference for the Society for Descriptive Psychology will be presented online this year via Zoom.
The Conference planning committee endeavored to follow the Conference's established scheduling of presentations and events as closely as possible. However, Zoom will require some new social practices and procedures, including administrative procedures for awarding CEUs. We will provide detailed information about these practices prior to the start of the Conference.
We look forward to sharing our presentations with any interested academician, clinician or student, whether a familiar face from previous meetings or someone who is only now discovering Descriptive Psychology (DP).
You can download a copy of the Conference Program by going directly to the Society website, http://www.sdp.org, and then clicking on the main page's conference link. The Program provides details about presentation topics and times (all Central Standard Time).
As usual, register for the entire event, attending as few or as many of the presentations as is permitted by your schedule, beginning with the Thursday evening President's Address. As part of the registration process we will be asking that you please indicate if you are a "Society Member," "Non-member" or "Student," as is most fitting, so we can manage our attendance records.
There are a few non-CEU events for current SDP members only, such as our General Business Meeting and the Social Hour. These will be indicated on the Conference Program.
For current members in good standing (i.e., those who have paid 2020 dues) who register for this conference, there will be a $35 discount in the individual or family dues for 2021. Information about this will be made available in the next dues notice.
Our application for Continuing Education Units has been approved by the University of Denver (DU), the APA CEU sponsoring organization. This year we will be offering a total of 10.5 CEUs.
There are no fees for attending the conference presentations or attaining the APA CEUs. By making the conference free of charge, our hope this year is to broaden the number and range of people who learn about and apply Descriptive Psychology. If you are new to DP or our Society, we welcome you and look forward to productive interactions during and after the Conference.
The Society for Descriptive Psychology is a non-profit organization registered in Colorado. Should you wish to express appreciation for the value of the information in the presentations or for the CEUs, please consider making a contribution to our student scholarship fund (offsetting expenses for students and early professionals to present at conferences) by contacting our Secretary-Tresurer at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contributing to any non-profit organization serving mental health or community service initiatives that improve the general welfare of people.
The University of Denver, Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP) is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. GSPP maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
