NPA Spring Conference "Two Homes, One Childhood" presenter, Dr. Robert Emery in the news.
The Omaha World Herald published an article Saturday, April 16th, following NPA's Friday Spring Conference, highlighting Robert Emery, Ph.D., Lorin Galvin, J.D. and NPA's Theodore DeLaet, Ph.D.

The article, titled "Parents shouldn’t pull children into divorce’s tug of war, expert says" addressed the need for both children and parents going through divorce to seek psychological help. "Parents sometimes are reluctant to do that because they don’t want judges to consider them mentally unstable, said Lorin Galvin, director of District Court Conciliation and Mediation Services for Douglas County. Galvin said that concern is unfounded." Click HERE to read the full article.

What does your psychology practice/licensing act reveal that can help your efforts to develop a Colleague Assistant Program?
After examining  the practice acts for various disciplines (i.e., medicine, nursing, pharmacy), Dr. Julio Rojas, Ph.D., co-chair of the Advisory Committee on Colleague Assistance (ACCA) has written an article looking at six areas where the psychology practice act in Oklahoma differed greatly. Dr. Rojas suggest that  "Even if you have a formal Colleague Assistance Program (CAP) in your state, it may be useful to review your state’s practice act as it lines up with the workings of your CAP." Click here to read his article addressing these differences posed in the form of six questions.
