CCPA Speakers Bureau


CCPA operates a Speakers Bureau composed of psychologists who are able to speak to community groups.  A list of psychologists and possible topics are provided below.  In addition, you may request any topic of related interest to your group, and our chair will attempt to find a psychologist prepared to speak on that topic.

Please contact Susan O’Grady, Ph.D., 925-938-6786 for more information about this community service provided by CCPA.
