NCSPP has created a set of committees to collect, organize,
and study these issues and has instituted an annual mid-winter training conference
to bring delegates from NCSPP member schools and programs together for discussion
of new developments in training, scholarship, and practice. The papers presented
at these conferences have served as the foundation for several landmark publications
on Professional Psychology. Below are links to additional resources that
provide more detailed descriptions of the thinking and techniques developed
NCSPP school and program faculty and administrators on topics
related to training in professional Psychology.
