DPA - Delaware Psychological Association

Calling all individuals, groups, employers and agencies that have been impacted by COVID-19! 

The Delaware Psychological Association is here to provide free outreach, emotional support, group and individual therapy sessions (up to 6 sessions), and public education.  We can offer virtual and on-site training opportunities if there is an expressed need for training and education on mental health and disaster response, coping skills, warning signs, and stress management.

To this end, we have volunteers available to provide these supportive services.  We also have several webinars planned that may be of interest to you or someone you know. If you have questions about our volunteer program, or would like to schedule a consultation, please contact us at 302-635-0311 or by email.


Tuesday, February 8th from 12-1PM - Dealing with Grief and Loss during Covid Presented by Dr. Christina Zampitella

The COVID pandemic has resulted in not just loss of life, but many other ambiguous losses such as jobs, health, rituals and traditions, connections, and a sense of safety. This webinar will explore loss and grief through the lens of COVID, and provide the clinician with several tangible interventions to use in psychotherapy with bereft clients.


Tuesday, March 8th from 12-1PM - Are You Losing Patience with Your Patients?  Targeted Strategies to Manage Compassion Fatigue Presented by Elizabeth Lombino, LCSW

Compassion Fatigue is a very real and distressing hazard to our helping profession. It can have a significant and pervasive impact on both the wellbeing of the helping professional and the care and treatment we provide to our patients. This is especially true now as we provide care in the context of the pandemic, which we all feel as a collective trauma. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to develop a more in depth understanding of these concepts and learn targeted and effective strategies to manage – and prevent – the impact of Compassion Fatigue.


Tuesday, April 12th from 12-1PM - Self-care and Stress Management Strategies Presented by Dr. Zach Radcliff
