CCaPPTC Membership Application
CCaPPTC Membership Overview & Eligibility
CCaPPTC includes member training programs at the doctoral, doctoral internship, and postdoctoral level who are involved in the education and training of psychologists to work with children, adolescents and families. Eligibility for membership is delineated in CCaPPTC membership criteria. Categories of membership are differentiated by the depth of clinical child/pediatric psychology training offered, as characterized in accordance with the Clinical Child & Adolescent Psychology Taxonomy (i.e., Full Membership or Associate Membership), with criteria that are specific to level of training (i.e., doctoral, doctoral internship, or postdoctoral fellowship). CCaPPTC welcomes applications from prospective member training programs via submission of an online application that is reviewed by the CCaPPTC Board for alignment with membership criteria. Additional information about membership may be found in the CCaPPTC bylaws.
Membership Application & Review Process
Programs seeking CCaPPTC membership must complete an online application (link below). Applications may be submitted at any time. Applications are reviewed by the CCaPPTC Board, with votes for approval occurring during monthly Board meetings; per CCaPPTC bylaws, an affirmative vote from at least 2/3 of CCaPPTC Board members. Applicant programs will be notified of the outcome and, if approved for membership, will subsequently be invoiced for dues. Membership becomes active once dues are remitted.
*Note: the online application uses Google Forms as the platform. Some institutions may block access to Google Forms; if you encounter difficulty, please attempt to access the form via an alternative device. Prospective applicants who are having difficulty accessing the application may also reach out to the CCaPPTC Board of Directors here.
Dues for CCaPPTC membership are due upon invoicing by the CCaPPTC Treasurer. For new members, invoicing occurs after approval for membership is granted; membership renewal occurs via annual invoicing.
Membership dues are $175 annually per member program. Dues are paid after an applicant program has been approved for membership and may be paid in the following ways:
Via the CCaPPTC website* - If you are paying through our website, please choose the type of payment associated with your program (doctoral, internship, fellowship) and include your CCaPPTC program number in the notes so that we may credit the correct program.
Via check - If paying by check, please make the check payable to CCaPPTC and include your CCaPPTC program number (listed on your invoice) on the check so that we may credit the correct program. Please send the check to Dr. Heather Yardley, CCaPPTC Treasurer, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, 700 Children’s Drive, Columbus OH 43205.
Via PayPal - If using PayPal, if possible please choose either the “personal” or “to family/friends” option to reduce administrative costs. You may send your PayPal payment to email@example.com.
