Virtual Paid Courses

Virtual-only attendees are invited for an exclusive first chance to register for four additional virtual course offerings taking place after the Annual Meeting, from June to July.

The 2024 APA Virtual Summer Courses are four-hour, clinically-focused content allowing participants to learn from and amongst their peers with instruction from leading experts on important topics in mental health care. Each virtual course is uniquely designed to guide participants through their learning journey. Participants meet with the faculty experts for virtual skill building instruction that includes live case presentations, breakout groups, and more.

Registration and Access to Courses

The courses will be facilitated in May – July 2024 via the APA Learning Center. Review the course details to determine when course materials will be available and when live trainings will be conducted. Each course has a unique structure that has been designed by the course presenters to foster an engaging online learning experience. Virtual Summer Course registrants will receive an email notification to confirm enrollment and provide guidance on accessing the course via the APA Learning Center using an invitation code.
