The Maryland Psychological Association (MPA), associated with the American Psychological Association (APA), is the statewide Professional Association for Psychologists in the state of Maryland. Our mission is to advance psychology as a science, a practice, and a means of promoting human welfare.
Of all the issues that confront psychologists in their efforts to be ethical practitioners, boundary issues and multiple relationships may be the most challenging and at times, the most confusing. Psychologists are in need of not only a good understanding of boundary issues and multiple relationships, but also of a comprehensive decision-making process for addressing such issues and dilemmas when they occur. This is a self-guided online course which includes a web forum for discussion and clarification of ethical issues related to boundary issues and multiple relationships.

On June 8, 2013, K. Dayle Jones, Ph.D. will present Diagnosis with DSM-5 and ICD. The workshop will be held 8:30am-4pm (6 CEs), with lunch included. More detail is provided in the course brochure. Online registration is open now.

The most frequently used CPT billing codes for psychotherapy will change on January 1, 2013. Psychologists who use any expired code after January 1, 2013 will not be reimbursed for their services.
MPA will sponsor two brown bag lunch workshops for mental health professionals to review these changes. A recorded webcast is also now available for those that prefer an online format or cannot attend in person. Details and registration are available here.
MPA members can also find more information on the new CPT code changes in the Practice Resources section of the website.
