MPA sponsors a variety of continuing education events including Friday Forums that are three-hour training sessions held in the Twin Cities that focus on clinical practice issues. Presenters receive a $250 stipend for their Friday Forum program. Other continuing Education programs may include full-day conferences and special one-hour programs and workshops. Some programs may be offered as live webinars or recorded for inclusion in MPA’s continuing education online library that is under development. Those who submit to do an online session will need to write 18 questions for the posttest. The audience for MPA’s continuing education events includes psychologists and a variety of other mental health professionals/practitioners.

MPA is an approved continuing education sponsor for the American Psychological Association, and each section of information on the proposal form is required. A resume or curriculum vitae for each presenter needs to accompany the proposal.
