Electronic Communications Editor Summer Column

Happy Summer SAP!

I hope warmer weather and long, sunny days have been on your calendar. Summer can mean a lightened workload, more time with loved ones, or a conclusion to the academic year.

Given the American Psychological Association’s annual conference on the horizon, the importance of collegial relationships within the mental health community has been on my mind. Conferences are an amazing time to connect with fellow researchers and clinicians. Please look at this year’s conference agenda linked here.

As once described by Amy Ellis, Division 29 offers a “professional home” to many clinicians. It not only provides countless opportunities for occupational growth, but also personal connection. Last year when Early Career Domain Representative, Yujia Lei, found out I was moving to her city, she immediately coordinated a lunch together and we bonded over our shared love for Netflix (and SAP of course!). When SAP President Tony Rousmaniere shared he over committed and was unable to write his presidential column for this quarter’s Psychotherapy Bulletin, SAP President-Elect Stewart Cooper stepped up to the plate, despite having a two-week notice. I am so grateful to be part of this community, both personally and professionally. We held our elections a few months ago for our leadership positions and I know the new cohort will continue to maintain the enthusiasm for the division we all so deeply care about. Congratulations to the newly elected officials! I look forward to our work together.

The Electronic Communications Team is looking for a Social Media Coordinator. After two valuable years, our current member, Yashi Aware, is stepping down. We are looking for a new member to join our smaller “professional home” and family. Please click here for more information. We are happy to share the rest of the team, Lacy Sohn, Deanna Young, and Sarah Bondy, have recommitted their contracts. The Electronic Communications Team works closely together and has a lot of fun while doing it. It is the perfect role for someone looking to build their own professional network and community.

Additionally, due to the high volume of enrollment Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy Membership is currently closed. If you choose to join between now and December 31, 2024, your membership will be activated on January 1, 2025, and will remain active until December 31, 2025. All memberships are on a calendar year basis.

Finally, we are proud to announce our new website starting August 2024. Thank you so much to TJ Slade, our web designer, and Amy Ellis for being so critical and thoughtful in this update. If you have any feedback or comments about the website, please email me at editor@societyforpsychotherapy.org.

Best,
