INITIATIVES

Early Career Psychologists

NPA is committed to supporting the needs of early career psychologists. Accordingly, NPA offers discounts on membership, opportunities to participate in monthly support group meetings, and extends a special welcome to newly licensed psychologists every fall at annual social events, held in both Las Vegas and Reno. We are active in recruiting ECP’s to participate in committees and leadership positions in the state, and offer mentorship opportunities to interested psychologists.

Diversity, Inclusion and Equity

Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Chair and Committee are dedicated to promoting diversity in Nevada. This includes welcoming psychologists from diverse backgrounds as well as promoting culturally sensitive services to the community. NPA is working to develop a Diversity Mission Statement, includes scientific and evidence-based information about working with diverse populations in our CE trainings, and strongly supports efforts to reach out to individuals different genders, ethnicities, ages, backgrounds, sexual orientations, cultures and abilities.

Business of Practice Network (BOPN)

NPA participates in the APA-sponsored Business of Practice Network. This initiative offers local businesses an opportunity to apply for the Healthy Workplace Award, given to businesses that meet the guidelines for creating a psychologically healthy workplace environment. Past winners have included the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Authority, who won a national PHW award. Additionally, psychologists have opportunities to meet with local businesses and offer presentations and trainings on relevant issues such as stress management, communication skills or time-management. Currently inactive, we Need a Leader!
