Virtual Courses

The 2023 APA Annual Meeting Virtual 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 starts with an interactive, self-paced module, after which participants meet with the faculty experts for virtual skill building instruction that includes live case presentations, breakout groups, and more.
