Submission Requirements:

  1. Please review these instructions carefully. Proposals must be submitted via email as a word file. Once you register for the application to be sent to you, complete all the questions on the application and email your application, CV, and photo to the LACPA office lacpa1@gmail.com. Proposals that do not follow the application format and/or are missing information will be returned without consideration. No honorarium is provided for convention presenters. If presenters plan to attend the full convention, registration, at a discounted rate, is required.  Reasonable A/V equipment will be provided.

  2. The LACPA Convention Committee is accepting proposals on all topics. Attendees have expressed interest in programs on PTSD, parenting, anxiety, depression, sexuality, substance abuse disorders, treatment issues with adolescents and couple therapy to name a few.  Multicultural perspectives on all topics are welcomed. Proposals will be reviewed by the LACPA Convention Committee. Please note that the Committee receives a large number of submissions and some are on the same topic. Therefore, broad clinical appeal and uniqueness of approach does help a presentation stand out. Upon request, a sample Convention Proposal Rating Sheet is available. This sheet serves as a broad gauge used by the Committee for proposal selection. The Committee also makes its decision based upon the following guidelines:


  • Proposals should reflect intermediate to advanced levels of learning, the more advanced the better;

  • A limited number of presentations will be selected;

  • Proposal topics should be based upon clearly stated educational goals and objectives;

  • Proposals should reflect applicability and relevance to doctoral level psychologists in the areas of

          clinical practice, theory, research, and methodology;

  • Proposals should demonstrate how the presentation will be organized in order to best facilitate the

          learning process for attendees;

  • Proposals should be objective (i.e., not reflecting any commercial views of the provider or presenter

          or anyone giving financial assistance to provider or presenter);

  • Proposals should be accompanied by a syllabus that contains instructional objectives, learning methods

          (i.e., lecture, slideshow, DVD/video, case material, etc.), and an outline of the major points to be presented;


  1. Should you require assistance or clarification, please do not hesitate to call the LACPA office at 818-905-0410.
