Associate dean and MA in Psychology program director Robert deMayo attended the American Psychological Association (APA) State Leadership Conference (SLC) in March, which is held annually in Washington, D.C. As president of the California Psychological Association (CPA), he accepted the award for Outstanding State Psychological Association on CPA’s behalf.
“This award recognizes the efforts CPA has made to improve our governance structure, involve students and early career psychologists in our association, and advocate for access to psychological services for the people of California,” said deMayo. “It was an honor to not only represent CPA, but also to represent GSEP alongside two exceptional PsyD alumni, Lisa Osborn (PsyD ‘99) and Gitu Bhatia (PsyD ‘00).”
The SLC is an annual advocacy training conference that brings together psychologists across the U.S. and Canada to advocate for issues important to practicing psychologists.
