IAPT offers a Wednesday night workshop before our annual conference, offering Supervision (odd years) and Ethics (even years) on an alternating basis.

2021 Wednesday Night Supervision Workshop (3 Contact CEs)

Masks Required for This Event (Updated 8/23/21)

With the continued risk of COVID-19 and the Delta variant, the IAPT Board has decided to require masks at our 2021 annual conference.  All participants will be required to wear a mask covering both their nose and mouth while in conference areas.  Participants may remove masks for eating or drinking only.

While we realize that this policy may not appeal to everyone, the Board believes that we have both personal and professional responsibilities to protect people in our communities.  Our policy recognizes that many of us may be at higher risk ourselves or be adjacent to those who are high-risk.  Additionally, as all of us work with children who are not yet able to be vaccinated, the Board views our responsibility to mask as a professional ethical responsibility to protect the young clients we serve.  Appreciating that the pandemic has greatly affected our abilities to enjoy life in ways we were previously used to, IAPT has implemented this policy to allow us all to gather as safely as possible.
