2021 Conference Theme:

Staying true to our CPA mission to promote the development of psychological theory and mental health practice which encompasses a full understanding of the human person, family,  and society in fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church our  2021 Conference theme: Preparing a Welcome Table: Unity and Diversity in the Church will invite us all to learn about and reflect upon the experiences of diverse ethnic and cultural groups and best practices in clinical treatment. Injustices in society such as racism and discrimination affect personal and family life on many levels. I am so excited to experience the unique contribution and gifts of the many cultural groups to our clinical practices, faith communities, our mental health field, and the Church. As we at CPA have already begun preparing a welcome table,  we hope that will join us by considering submission of a proposal and/or inviting colleagues with expertise in the areas related to this year’s Conference theme. Most importantly, I ask you to pray for CPA and our Conference Committee that we continue to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and for the intercession of St. Paul, the 2021 Conference Patron Saint.
