American Psychological Association Convention Programming


The Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (SCCAP) has dedicated programming at the Annual National Convention of the American Psychology Association. From its inception, the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (SCCAP), APA Division 53, has been committed to advancing the clinical knowledge base and services provided to children and their families. 

Wikiversity pages[edit | edit source]

In 2017 we started using Wikiversity pages to share selected materials from sessions. Advantages of the Wiki format are that a single set of pages could gather the information from throughout the schedule (including parallel sessions). The pages also include links to resources and materials referred to in the talks and discussions. Another feature of the Wiki is that content can be added in real time (and student editors will add some content "on the fly" during discussions), and pages are still "live" and editable after the convention. Yet another aspect of the Wiki is that there are "Discussion" pages attached to each of the content pages, where more informal question and answer and discussion can take place.

In short, these pages create a shared set of notes and resources that participants can continue to use and build upon even after the meeting. They also are a shared resource for people interested in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, broadly speaking, globally. The pages for 2017 are located here.
