Presenters: Joy Gabrielli , PhD, University of Florida; Joan Hanania, PhD, Harvard Medical Center; Cecilia Valrie, PhD, Virginia Commonwealth University

Moderators: Perry Caitlin and Ellison Sage Choate, Division 54

Description: Graduate school offers many resources to help navigate the different stages of your program, but it can be difficult to know how to access those resources or which mentors to turn to for help. The Society for Child and Family Policy and Practice (Division 37), the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (Division 53), and the Society of Pediatric Psychology (Division 54) are hosting a virtual panel for psychology trainees and all students to hear from experts on how to utilize resources and mentors in different stages of your graduate program. Experts in their early-, mid-, and late-career will be able to discuss the best time to use certain resources and how to effectively communicate with mentors as a graduate students.

Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, American Psychological Association Division 53, is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. SCCAP maintains responsibility for this program and its content. For registration questions, contact Lynn Canty,
