Member-At-Large Diversity: Candidate Statements

Changming Duan, PhD

I feel truly humbled to be nominated to run for election for Member-at-Large: Diversity of Division 29 – Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy (SAP). SAP is an outstanding community that has not only provided me and its members a welcoming professional home, judicious intellectual guidance, and strong collegial support, but also played a significant leadership within APA in addressing various cutting edge domestic and international issues that define psychology and psychotherapy practice in the 21st century. I am inspired by our society’s leadership in promoting advancement of psychotherapy from diverse cultural and social perspectives and want to contribute to its mission through service as well as culturally responsive research and practice.

I obtained my Ph.D. in social and counseling psychology from University of Maryland College Park, and subsequently served on the counseling psychology faculty at University of Missouri Columbia and Kansas City respectively before my current position as a professor in the counseling psychology program at University of Kansas. I have been a proud member of our Society and served as its APA convention chair, a committee chair, and a domain representative in the past. If elected, I will do all my best to serve with assiduousness and diligence toward promoting diversity and multiculturalism in psychotherapy research, practice, and training.
