CPS Professional Development Opportunities

The Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) Department sponsors all day professional development workshops each semester for up to 150 participants per event, many of whom are school counselors and psychologists who practice within the central New York region. Other participants include graduate students and faculty. Nationally-known speakers and the opportunity to earn continuing education credits are added attractions. 

The CPS Spring Seminar has been organized by the department for more than 20 years; the CPS Professional Development Initiative Workshop is a similar fall event. Both are scheduled on regional superintendent’s days and feature topics of interest to school counselors and psychologists (e.g., autism, school violence, adolescent sexuality, media influences on the sexual behavior of youth; and understanding trans-gendered youth). CPS also hosts an annual all day Play Therapy Workshop in the summer to provide sustained professional development for regional professionals.
