Spring 2020 Workshops Canceled

In light of the growing public health concern, and potential for community transmission, we have a responsibility to our members, clients, and students and to the greater community to minimize the risk associated with spreading the virus. While there are currently no known cases among potential conference attendees, our board has voted to cancel our spring conference.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule the Spring Conference for a later date. The SCASP Board met on Friday to discuss options for refunds and for future conferences. We will be offering the following options for refunds:

  1. Part of your Spring Conference fees can be transferred directly toward your 2020 or 2021 SCASP membership.
  2. You can request a refund of your Spring Conference Fees.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of this early opportunity to register for the Fall Workshop. Please contact Lynn Collins with an option for a refund ( Again, thank you all for your patience and cooperation.

DSM 5 Course opportunity

The Winthrop School Psychology Program will be offering PSYC 690- “Applying DSM-5 to Children and Adolescents” again this coming summer. The 3-credit course will include one introductory afternoon session at Winthrop the afternoon of June 12th, followed by internet-based modules and submission of a real or simulated case study to which students have applied DSM-5 criteria. The texts will include the DSM-5 and DSM-5 in the Schools as well as some readings provided by the instructor.

Dr. Harriett Ford will teach the course. Dr. Ford is a Section 504 Specialist and former school psychologist with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and is an adjunct instructor and supervisor at Winthrop University. She was previously on the faculty at the University of Kentucky.

The South Carolina Board of Examiners for Licensure of Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Psycho-Educational Specialists has approved PSYC 690 as meeting its DSM requirement. The course also meets continuing professional development requirements (3 graduate credit hours, typically translated to 45 CEU’s) for state and national certification.

The course will be offered at a special tuition and fee rate of $980, which represents over a 25% reduction from usual Winthrop summer rates. Those who are interested should complete the application at:

The course is limited to 20 students, so don’t delay in registering!
