Division on Practice highlights

The Division on Practice (DoP) had a number of events at the 2019 convention that offered opportunities to learn more about the division, activities and projects we have been working on over the past year, and to provide suggestions and feedback on the future direction of the DoP.

Friday, Oct. 6

  • DoP Lunch Meeting (12:10pm in Atzlan) – Please bring your lunch and join us for our business meeting.
  • DoP Interactive Session: Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling (3:50pm in Atzlan) – We had 50-60 practitioners in various stages of their professional journeys (e.g., students, post-licensure, early career, mid-career, late-career) come together to connect and explore the barriers, challenges, needs, and strengths of becoming an Asian American mental health professional. Participants also had a chance to share wisdom, to inspire, to ask for guidance, and to continue to hope.
