REHABILITATION PSYCHOLOGY 2015
The 17th annual Rehabilitation Psychology continuing education program is organized by the American Board of
Rehabilitation Psychology (ABRP) and the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology (Division 22) of the American
Psychological Association (APA). As noted on the Division 22 website, Rehabilitation Psychology is a specialty area
within psychology that focuses on the study and application of psychological knowledge and skills on behalf of
individuals with disabilities and chronic health conditions in order to maximize health and welfare, independence and
choice, functional abilities, and social role participation across the lifespan. Please visit our website to find out more
www.div22.org!
Leadership has set “Engagement” as a Division 22 focus. RP15 will share this vision and work toward maximizing
participation of each member of our division and in ways that are uniquely congruent and meaningful for
membership through the conference theme Innovations in Rehabilitation Psychology. Program content regarding
practice, research, ethics, and training will be developed by the program committee as they relate to the following
thematic areas: technological advances (e.g., equipment, social media, mobile applications; virtual reality
simulations, robotics); stakeholder engagement (e.g., caregivers, patients, families, providers, administration,
students, business partners); and knowledge translation (e.g., practice to research, research to practice). We are
excited to develop program content from which rehabilitation psychologists working with a variety of populations
and within various settings can learn and collaborate!
By the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
1. Identify current trends and learn new skills in rehabilitation psychology practice;
2. Discuss innovations in research and practice as well as their potential impact on service delivery;
3. Describe the key elements of ABPP/ABRP eligibility, the practice sample submission and review, the oral
examination process, and characteristics of effective mentoring;
4. Discuss key issues for training in Rehabilitation Psychology;
5. Understand fundamental issues in ethics, cultural diversity, and evidence-based practice as applied to
rehabilitation psychology.
TARGET AUDIENCE:
This conference is designed for psychologists in practice and/or academic settings who focus on rehabilitation with
individuals having chronic diseases, impairments and / or physical and cognitive disabilities as well as for trainees
(students, interns, and postdoctoral residents) with interests in rehabilitation psychology. Program content will be directed
to all (i.e., basic, intermediate and advanced) skill levels.

Guide to Writing Learning Objectives
•
Learning objectives clearly describe what the learner will know or be able to do as a result of having
attended an educational program or activity (“The learner will be able to define, recite, identify,
describe, etc.”).
•
Learning objectives must be observable and measurable.
•
Learning objectives should (1) focus on the learner, and (2) contain action verbs that describe
measurable behaviors
•
•
Verbs to USE:
• list, describe, recite, write
• compute, discuss, explain, predict
• apply, demonstrate, prepare, use
• analyze, design, select, utilize
• compile, create, plan, revise
• assess, compare, rate, critique
•
Verbs to AVOID
• know, understand
• learn, appreciate
• become aware of, become familiar with
Acceptable learning objectives effectively tie the knowledge gains associated with your program to the
functioning of the attendees and highlight the professional and scientific gains that would be expected to
accrue as a result of the program.
Example of well-written learning objectives:
Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to:
• Discuss basic hypnosis theory and technique
• List differences between acute and chronic pain
• Utilize hypnosis in controlling acute pain
• Apply post-hypnotic suggestions to chronic pain
