The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Clinical Psychology Training Program is co-hosting Arthur Evans, CEO of the American Psychological Association, on Sept. 15.
Evans will tour campus, including the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, and will present to and connect with the Nebraska Psychological Association during a members-only meeting at 4 p.m.
A town hall will then be held at 5:30 p.m., which will include Evans’ presentation, “A Vision for the Future of APA and Psychology,” followed by a Q&A discussion, awards and reception. The town hall is open to the public and will be held in the Platte River Room of Nebraska Union.
With more than 146,000 members, the APA is the world’s largest association dedicated to the field of psychology. This year is the 75th anniversary of APA accreditation for the Clinical Psychology Training Program.
The NPA, an affiliate of the APA, is co-hosting the visit. Organized in 1951, it is the only statewide organization dedicated to the interests of psychologists and psychology across Nebraska.
