Join CPA and presenter Dr. Stuyt for her program on Monday, April 8 from 9:00am - 12:00pm. The Green Symposium is an annual gathering hosted by the Colorado Psychological Association. The Symposium focuses on the latest developments and research findings regarding cannabis. It began in 2017 in an effort to disseminate information to behavioral health care providers and others in the treatment community.

Marijuana Impact Assessment – The Consequences of High Potency THC Marijuana
Dr. Stuyt, MD


Level of Programming: Introductory

Program Description: 
Advocates for the legalization of medical and retail marijuana are quick to point out all the possible benefits that a community might see from such a venture. These include increased jobs, increased tax revenue, possible medical benefits and they advertise it as “safe” and “healthy” and “organic”. They utilize the words “cannabis” and “marijuana” for everything without differentiating between the different forms of cannabis that can have very different effects on the mind and body. However, without any clear guidelines or regulations from government officials, the cannabis industry has taken a page from the tobacco and alcohol industries’ play book and developed strains of marijuana and concentrated marijuana products with much higher concentrations of THC, the psychoactive component that causes addiction. Dr. Stuyt will cover how marijuana use contributes to addiction, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation and psychosis. 

**3 CE Credits Available!

CE Price: $25.00

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Recognize the difference between different forms of cannabis including hemp, CBD products and high potency THC plants and concentrates.
  2. Describe the effect of THC on the developing brain.
  3. Discuss the role high potency THC cannabis plays in addiction, anxiety, depression, suicide, psychosis and cognitive impairment.

SAMD EVENT: "Toward Right Relationship with Native People”

Posted: March 21, 2019

Date: Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00 pm
Location: Parkhill United Methodist Church, 5209 Montview Blvd, Denver (NW corner of intersection at Montview and Glencoe)

This event is a monthly group conversation/workshop for individuals interested in participating in an open discussion of inter-racial issues.  There is an emphasis on current events within a historical context and how issues of race, ethnicity, gender and other aspects of our identity interact with the cultural communities in which we live. Ever respectful of differing opinions, participants are encouraged to discuss racial/cultural issues in an inclusive, nonjudgmental way. The activity for the April meeting as described by Boulder Friends is:

"An experiential workshop tracing the historic and ongoing impacts of the Doctrine of Discovery, the 15th-century justification for European subjugation of non-Christian peoples. Our goal is to raise our level of knowledge and concern about these impacts, recognize them in ourselves and our institutions, and explore how we can begin to take actions toward right relationship with Native peoples."

For those interested in attending this event, we ask you to come to the Omonoia Greek Bakery (free coffee or tea to the first 10 arriving) to meet with other members of the CPA community  attending this event.  If unable to attend the pre-event meeting, please join us at Parkhill United Methodist Church.  All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT

Register now:  https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/3104478075647474187

The American Psychological Association offers this webinar to help all psychology graduate students, in particular those affected by Argosy’s closure. This webinar will help you consider your options and how to plan your next steps with eyes wide open. While APA does not rank schools, nor can it provide explicit guidance in individual circumstances, we present this information in the hope that students will evaluate each of their options carefully, whether they were provided by Argosy or sought out independently. 

The webinar will feature Dr. Garth A. Fowler, the Associate Executive Director of APA’s Graduate Psychology Education and Training. Dr. Fowler will walk you through some tools to help you think about the best transfer programs for you. The webinar will be hosted by Dr. Eddy Ameen, Associate Executive Director of APA's Early Career and Graduate Student Affairs. Dr. Ameen will provide some introductory updates about APA's efforts to support members of the AU community and remind attendees about the updated resources at www.apa.org/apags/argosy. An extensive Q&A will follow.  

A recording of this webinar will be available to all who register, and the above registration link will also provide access to the recording after it airs.

 

SAMD EVENT: The History of Psychology and Religion 

Posted: March 21, 2019

Date:
Wednesday, May 29, 2019
Time: 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Location: Ross-Cherry Creek Library; 305 Milwaukee Street, Denver 80206

Please join us for a presentation and panel discussion regarding the ways in which religion/faith and psychology are integrated to provide support to many in our client populations.  We as clinicians see individuals who look for solace from both the religious and mental health communities and as such, we have a professional responsibility to expand our knowledge and understanding of the roles both we as mental health professional and faith leaders play in supporting the wellbeing of our clients. All who are interested are welcome! Light refreshments will be served. 

Our panel will be comprised of religious representatives of Judaism, Islam, and both Eastern and Western Christianity. Areas of discussion will include such questions as: How do we see religion and psychology related to each other? What role do we play in our communities? Why and when do people turn to religion? Do you believe it is appropriate for mental health providers to discuss religious/faith issues with clients? Under what circumstance would it be appropriate for a mental health provider to reach out to a religious leader?  These are just a few of the questions open for discussion and are by no means exhaustive. Please join us with your own questions and ideas. Our program will be moderated in part by Klarissa Garcia Orellana and Danielle Xanthos both doctoral students at Denver University Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP) and members of the Colorado Psychological Association of Graduate Students (COPAG).


If you plan to attend, please RSVP: Reine Evereteze, Psy.D. (SAMD Chair) at 303-202-6143 x 5 or email: [email protected] by no later than Wednesday, May 22nd.

 

CPA Statement: Argosy University

"We at CPA are aware of the far reaching implications that the recent closure of Argosy University can and will have on Colorado psychologists who received their training from this institution, as well as for the current students who are left to fend for themselves as Argosy dissolves. This closure is affecting up to 9,600 students, and many of our nation’s legislators are aware of the issue and confronting the Department of Education and demanding action in the name of those affected. Last Tuesday, on 3/12, CPA President-elect Dr. Rick Ginsberg, CPA Executive Director Kim Gill, and myself personally handed a letter to each of Colorado’s representatives explaining how the closure of Argosy University is not only deeply disruptive to the lives of these students, but also, will have a negative impact on workforce development, and on our ability to serve the behavioral health needs of our country moving forward. Attached is a link to a letter that you can send to Secretary Betsy DeVos in support of those who are affected by this closure, https://www.apa.org/advocacy/higher-education/devos-letter.pdf. CPA will also be providing resources as they become available and will share in-the-moment information as we become aware of it."
