Omaha Psychologists Meet for Discussion

Several Omaha-area psychologists met for lively conversation Wednesday at Charleston’s Restaurant for the return of NPA’s “Omaha Psychologist Luncheon”. NPA Past President and current APA Council Representative Dave Carver, Ph.D. updated the gathering on the recent APA Council of Representatives (COR) meeting in Washington where the combined APA and APA Practice Organization membership was approved. The COR meeting also included discussions on national issues regarding questions of certification of persons with psychology masters degree, guidelines for treatment of obesity in children, the EPPP exam changes and proposal of a two-part licensing exam, and Nebraska potentially being a founding member of the Telepsych Compact.

NPA Federal Advocacy Coordinator Jim Madison, Ph.D. reviewed the recent APA Practice Leadership Conference meetings, NPA’s lobbying efforts and outcomes - including Adrian Smith signing on to support HR 1173, the Medicare Mental Health Access Act, and the presentation of the 2018 State Senator of the Year Award to Nebraska Senator Stinner.

It was great to have both ECPs as well as seasoned psychologists at the luncheon, which helped stimulate some dynamic discussions and networking. As always, all psychologists – members and nonmembers – are welcome at NPA luncheons and meet-and-greet events! Those attending are already looking forward to the next luncheon!
