o We would like to call the "mid-year" meeting the "Annual Meeting" since most of our important activities occur then. APA has become just a planning meeting and a couple of presentations. So, this March, 2009 meeting will be called the Annual ADPTC Meeting.
o We want to have an explicit focus at the beginning of the conference on welcoming new members since this meetings is the first in 3 years that will have only ADPTCers in attendance. Some ideas to facilitate new ADPTCers' welcome:
Solicit input from new members regarding questions, their needs for consultations, wishes to connect with specific committees or individual members.
Provide some structured opportunities into the program for new members to interact with current members (e.g., break out groups, one-on-one consultations).
o There was some discussion of having a presentation of a Friend of ADPTC award, and /or a Jean Spruill Award. Kim Lassiter's name came up as a good nominee for this sort of recognition. More discussion is needed on this, especially to determine if Kim would be able to come to the meeting; the sense was that she could/would.
o Eric Sauer and Bob Hatcher noted that here should be a specific time to present some opportunity to discuss use of the OQ. Karen White needs to follow up with Eric and Bob on these details.
o Suggestions for content at the Annual Meeting" are noted on the attached outline. The most prominent issues include: 1) diversity, serving the under-served, and training issues related to those topics; 2) anchoring the history of ADPTC with our vision for the future (maybe a panel discussion format); 3) addressing needs for professional development and self-care for training clinic directors, strengthening our roles in our departments, modeling self-care skills, and attention to professional development for trainees. .
The newsletter committee/ Phyllis Terry Friedman, Vic Pantesco, and Robin Weill, is soliciting volunteers to write up a book review for each newsletter. Books can be broadly related to psychology. The review is needed by October 1st for the November 2008 newsletter, and March 1st for the April 2009 newsletter. The committee is also soliciting links to published articles and papers which members have written or presented. We can publish presentations but need just a brief paragraph about a publication and the link (for copyright reasons we cannot publish published articles). We also agreed to move the newsletter to the public section (currently it is for members only).
o Several ADPTC members of this committee have represented us at different meetings. Bob Hatcher reported on CCTC activities related to practicum competencies. Planning has also begun for CCTC joint conference in 2010. Philinda Hutchings provided our membership with an informative report of the BEA meeting for ADPTC. Erica Wise attended ACCTA this year. Eric Sauer has agreed to attend ELC for ADPTC next month. As Kim Lassiter is no longer a clinic director, Bob Hatcher has agreed to attend APPIC in Oregon this year. The ADPTC liaison report was updated after the midyear meeting and will be revised again. The liaison committee is recruiting a school psychologist who can represent us ad CDSPP.

2. "Anchoring History and Vision for ADPTC"
o Reflections on March 1999 when the "gang of 12" met in Chicago for
the first ADPTC mid-year meeting. Brian Lewis, then ADPTC President,
guided the group (Jean Spruill, Bob Hatcher, Lee Cooper, Phyllis Terry
Friedman, Carol Yoken, Manny Gerton, Mary Alice Conroy, Tony Cellucci,
John Flora-Tostado, Bobbi Vollmer, and Rob Heffer) toward a broader
vision of how ADPTC could equip training clinic directors and influence
professional psychology education and practice on a broader scale. We
can then develop a renewed vision for ADPTC's future direction.
3. A panel discussion of models, context of work environment for training directors
Self-care and personal/professional development for clinic directors.
How do directors advance, promote, and develop professionally?
"Fostering self-care in Psychology Trainees" - possible presentation by Vic Pantesco
4. Ideas for the Jean Spruill Achievement Award for an ADPTC-er.
Jean was the first recipient of the Achievement Award for her co-founding of ADPTC and active involvement for almost three decades. The two past recipients of the "Friend of
ADPTC Award" have been Paul Nelson (APA-New Orleans) and Jeff Baker
(ADPTC Mid-Year Meeting-San Antonio).
o Kim Lassiter mentioned as a recipient of this award or have some other recognition
technological issues (e.g., digital videotaping, use of OQ in training clinics (Eric Sauer?)
conducting background checks of students--practical, legal, and ethical issues
developing and producing annual reports for clinics
recruiting/soliciting clinic clients for research participation - practical and ethical issues
custody issues, child clients, and consent to treatment
different models for screening/intakes/initial client contact
standardized assessment packages: beyond the OQ -- practical and ethical issues
students informed consent for supervision (there was a special section in PPRP in the last couple of years )
