CSPP/Alliant at SIOP 2014


The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) was well-represented once again at the 2014 SIOP Conference in Honolulu, HI (May 15-17) with presentations by faculty, alumni and students.

Our Networking Mixer (photo of some of the participants below) was a great event with over 50 alumni, faculty, students and guests. The food, location, and atmosphere were great, and reminded us how much we are proud to be a part of the CSPP/Alliant community.


Among our faculty presenters at SIOP:  Drs. Nurcan Ensari (LA campus),  Bernardo Ferdman (SD campus), Cal Hoffman (LA campus), Denise Lopez (LA campus) and Rodney Lowman (SD campus). Alumni presenters include Alicia Allegrini, Dr. Lisa Collings, Dr. Magda Cure, Dr. Victoria Davis, Dr. Daniel Kuzmycz and Dr. Michael Milad. Student presenters include Victoria Hendrickson.
