SIOP Launches Online CE Ethics Course

SIOP is pleased to announce the launch of “Ethics and Values in I-O Psychology,” an online CE course presented by Joel Lefkowitz, PhD, ABPP. The course includes 3 hours of content in the form of audio and visual synched with slides, which is broken down into 5 units for viewing at your own pace. A certificate of completion and verification of 3 CE credits is awarded after all five units are viewed and pre and post tests are successfully completed.

This workshop provides a guide for understanding ethical and unethical behavior, and includes a discussion of the cognitive and motivational components of ethical behavior and a general decision-making strategy for coping with ethical dilemmas. Unlike other workshops, this one takes an I-O perspective. The presenter is emeritus faculty at Baruch College, CUNY, and is a well-known researcher, author, and practitioner in the area of professional ethical behavior.

For a limited time, SIOP is offering this course at the special launch rate of $60! For complete details and to purchase the course, please visit the CE ethics course page here. 

We hope you will enjoy this online learning opportunity tailored specifically to meet the ethics-related needs of I-O psychologists.

*SIOP is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. SIOP maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

SIOP Seeks APA Board and Committee Nominations

It is that time of year when APA solicits nominations for boards and committees. These boards and committees are where the real work of APA takes place, so having good I-O representation is an important goal. All APA members may submit nominations through the APA website. The SIOP administrative office also submits nominations on behalf of SIOP. If you are interested in being nominated or have suggestions for nominations, please spread the word and inform the External Relations Committee (through Debra Major at dmajor@odu.edu). The ERC is tasked with helping to coordinate support for nominees and can assist in helping members understand how to navigate the APA elections process.
