2013 APA Education Leadership Conference
Ethics and Education
This year's 2013 Education Leadership Conference (ELC) was held held Sept. 28 - Oct. 2. In addition to APA governance members and division representatives, participants included representatives from over 25 organizations external to APA that are concerned with education and training in psychology. The long-term goals of the annual ELC are to:
- Provide a forum for groups and organizations across all levels of education and training to address issues of mutual concern.
- Promote a shared disciplinary identity among education and training leaders in psychology.
- Impact public policy regarding education in psychology and psychology in education.
This year's Education Leadership Conference theme was "Ethics and Education." We discussed ethics in the context of teaching, clinical supervision, administration and training in research ethics. We also examined innovations in the teaching of ethics.
