This extends a conference series that began at the University at Buffalo and then continued for more than a decade at Adelphi University. The IICCS brings together supervision practitioners, educators, and researchers from across the spectrum of mental health professions and from around the world to have dialogues and create synergies that are otherwise not possible.
Due to the COVID-19 virus, the conference will be offered virtually, July 29-31. Because it is virtual, international participation in the conference this year is especially large, drawing presenters and attendees from Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Australia.

CAPE's conferences and programs have drawn mental health professionals from around the world. As well, CAPE faculty have consulted internationally. The map below indicates some of the places our participants have come from (purple) as well as where our faculty have provided post-degree training (blue).
CAPE has multiple vehicles for helping practitioners develop competence in the business of practice. One of those -- the private practice boot camp -- is a two day event that covers the topics that will be addressed more deeply and thoroughly in the business of practice certificate program. It might be instructive, therefore, for those who are considering one or more of the certificate courses to hear what boot camp attendees have said about their experience:
Celine Ko, Ph.D., a Redlands, CA psychologist:
No one had warned me that I would have to learn how to be a business person if I were to start my own private practice. I was overwhelmed and unsure where to start. CAPE's private practice boot camp proved to be a game changer.
Lauren Behrman and Jeff Zimmerman walked us through each step of what we need to do to get our businesses up and running. They are amazing mentors who inspired us and provided great feedback and guidance. I left with a completed business plan, an action plan and a vision of what I wanted to do.
Participating in this program also connected me to a network of clinicians who can provide support as I start my own business; like-minded people who want me to succeed. It was definitely worth the investment!
