Dr. Maheu, along with a dynamic group of psychology and technology professionals, will sponsor a unique networking event for professionals interested in telepsychology and technology from 5:00 to 7:30 PM on Friday, August 3, 2012 at the Hilton Hotel’s lobby bar (across from the Orange County Convention Center). The Telepsychology and Technology Cocktail Party is a no-host event for anyone interested in telehealth, telepsychology, remote care, online counseling, online therapy, virtual reality, virtual worlds, or any other technology mediated treatment, research, or training.
The Telepsychology and Technology Cocktail Party is an excellent opportunity for professionals who are interested in telehealth to talk with members of the proposed Society for Technology and Psychology about their proposed APA Division: the Society for Technology and Psychology. Dr. Maheu looks forward to discussing the how the proposed division will benefit for the profession of psychology and the public. These benefits will include providing a central forum for those with an interest in discussing, sharing and learning about patient-care technologies, and appealing to younger colleagues on whom the future of the profession will depend. APA members who are interested in telehealth are invited to review and sign the petition for the formation of the Society of Technology and Psychology.
