GRHS Psychologist Attends American Psychological Association Meeting

April 11, 2001 – Child and adolescent psychologist Jonathan Weinand, Ph.D., Great River Mental Health Care Associates, recently returned from a governance meeting of the American Psychological Association in Washington, D.C. As a member of the associationís Continuing Professional Education Committee (CPEC), he attended a congressional reception on Capitol Hill.

During the meeting, Dr. Weinand helped the association meet its mission to offer continuing-education training via the Internet for licensed psychologists. That service is expected to begin this year. Also, Weinand was elected to an ad hoc CPEC committee charged with developing criteria for continuing education for nontraditional, alternative therapies.

Great River Mental Health Care Associates is part of Great River Health Systems. Their offices are located in the Mercy Plaza next to Great River Medical Center in West Burlington, Iowa.
