Interest Groups

APNS facilitates the formation of interaction among members with common interests. These are not formal committees but are groups of psychologists interested in a particular topic (Rural, Testing, Ethics, PTSD, Couples therapy, etc.) that are facilitated through APNS. Formation of a group will depend on getting a sufficient number interested in the same topic and may be regional in nature. See the Continuing Eduction Committee for more information.

Child & Adolescent Psychology Interest Group (CAP-I)

The Child and Adolescent Psychology Interest Group (CAP-I) is comprised of psychologists who work with children and adolescents and their families. We meet four to five times during the academic year to share information on topics of interest to the group and to provide an opportunity to get to know our colleagues who work in a range of settings (schools, hospitals, universities, private practices, forensic settings, etc). We usually meet on Saturdays between 10:30-12:30.

During this time we have a presenter who discusses a topic of interest and we also share in a potluck brunch (please bring a small contribution of a breakfast/lunch food item for the potluck brunch). We welcome all registered psychologists who work with children and their families. To join please contact


Dr. Lindsay Bates, R.Psych. and Rachel Panton, R.Psych.
