Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 membership year!
Your NCPA Board members, Carol Hassett (Treasurer), Fran Schweitzer (Secretary), Chuck King (Trustee), and Ron Smith (Trustee), as well as Shane Owens (our NYSPA Rep) join me in thanking you for continuing to support the profession right here where you live, at your local level, in Nassau County. We actively represent both Clinical and School Psychologists, and do our best to advocate for you and for your constituents.
We're particularly excited about our first program this year, on Mindfulness, co-sponsored with the Adelphi University Derner Institute. Dr. Anthony Pantaleno and Dr. Gabrielle Chiaramonte will present "Mindfulness for You, Mindfulness for Your Patients, Mindfulness Applications for School Populations" on Sunday morning, November 6, 2016. Check your emails soon for further information.
We're also planning programs on School Climate and Social-Emotional Learning. Recent NY State legislation mandates attention to these issues in the schools, and we’re pleased to help you pragmatically, to stay current with your professional skills. Last April, our program “How to Start and Build a Psychotherapy Practice” was widely applauded by early career psychologists as well as by many of us who have been around quite a long while. We hope to offer you even more.
We encourage you, our highly valued Long-Term members, to attend these professional programs and help us welcome and encourage our New Members and our Student Members by offering them your smiles and a few kind words of greeting when you meet them.
We very much want all of you, our members, our new members, and our student members to come to our programs and help us consider and plan for other programs. Please don’t be shy. If we can better meet your needs, please talk to us and we’ll try harder. Help us keep NCPA alive and well.
Please join us or renew your membership right now!
With our very best wishes to all of you,
Maxine M. Marcus, Ph.D., NCPA President
