President’s Column:

Lauren Muhlheim, Psy.D.

Welcome to the annual convention issue of The Los Angeles Psychologist. This will be our third virtual convention. Our committee, led by our convention chairs Jaz Robbins, Psy.D. and Bennie Harris, B.A., has put together a very exciting program. Thanks to the stewardship by Dr. Robbins and Mr. Harris, LACPA has successfully both showcased presenters of diverse backgrounds and elevated topics applicable to serving more marginalized populations.

As usual, there will be two morning sessions. Participants will be able to choose from four selections each session. 

Session options will include:

  • Emerging Cumulative Trauma Within Family Systems  
  • Helping Intercultural Couples Attune, Change, and Liberate
  • How to Heal: Neuroscience and Our Nervous Systems
  • Anti-racist Group Therapy Principles and Strategies    
  • Sociocultural Considerations in Mindfulness and Compassion Interventions    
  • Effective Treatment with the Suicide Bereaved 
  • Social Responsibility in the Neuropsychological Evaluation of Diverse Children 
  • Strengthening Latinx Identity in Culturally Competent Therapy
