Memories and Events from #NLPA2018

The National Latinx Psychological Association (NLPA) is a national organization of mental health professionals, academics, researchers, and students whose objective is to generate and advance psychological knowledge and foster its effective application for the benefit of Latinxs.

NLPA’s membership represents a rich diversity of national background, ethnicity, cultural origin, religious tradition, and political ideology. We work in a wide range of professional and academic settings. 

Bienvenida Welcoming & Networking Reception

It is a great opportunity to reunite and make new long lasting professional connections and friendships.

Cultural Event

This event offers attendees another opportunity to network and recognize the presence and contributions of Latina/o communities in the United States and celebrate our rich heritage and culture. 

This year we were honored and excited to feature a conversation between artist Joey Terrill and poet Yosimar Reyes!

Noche de Gala: Awards, Dinner, & Dance Reception

Our largest and most anticipated event is our Noche de Gala. During this party attendees dined, celebrated accomplishments and danced until 1 a.m. in morning.

WHAT DO past ATTENDEES HAVE TO SAY?

"Por medio de su apoyo imenso NLPA a cambiado la vida de miles y nos empoderá a seguir unidos."

"NLPA has been the highlight of my year thus far - I got to meet my idol who said she will help me become even greater than her."

"I haven't even had time to process all the awesomeness from the three different panels that I participated in yesterday- I was blown away by Latinx faculty personal career stories...The cherry on top was presenting my own participatory action research with top notch colleagues. #NLPA16 #SoMuchGoodness."
