The Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy (Division 29 of APA) is excited to launch its Advocacy and Mentoring Program for Diversity (AMPD) for doctoral students. This two-year mentoring program was developed in response to needs related to diversity and leadership development in the field. The Executive Board of the Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy (Division 29) understands the necessity for leadership development and recognizes the need for a diverse leadership pool.
Advocacy and Mentoring Program for Diversity (AMPD) Scholars
The AMPD Scholars Program is a two-year program designed to provide exposure and mentoring for 2 doctoral students who have an interest in learning about the leadership of the Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy (Division 29 of APA) and the various domains of the Executive Board. AMPD Scholars will be selected to work on a diversity-related project within a specific domain of interest (e.g., Publications, Membership, Practice, Education and Training, Public Interest and Social Justice, Diversity, or Science and Scholarship). AMPD scholars will receive mentoring from committee members, committee chairs, and domain representatives of their domain of choice. In addition, the Executive Board will work closely with AMPD Scholars to introduce them to the leadership process. They will attend Executive Board Meetings and teleconference with members of the domain of their choice.
Application is attached. Please share with doctoral students. Please direct any inquiries about the program to Rosemary Phelps at [email protected].
