Meet the student members who build community and advocate students’ perspective among practitioners and scholars of psychotherapy


Welcome to the Student Portal!

My name is Carly Schwartzman and I am a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University at Albany, SUNY. I am excited and privileged to serve the Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy and its student members as the Chair of the Student Development Committee for the 2019-2020 term.

I initially joined the Society to further my knowledge of the field of psychotherapy process research and enhance my networking in the research community. As the student chair, I hope to facilitate and foster these interests and experiences for fellow students as well. Specifically, I am passionate about the enhancement of the graduate student experience within the University setting and in the broader professional community. I aim to work to enhance student support and involvement within Division 29 to foster collaboration and networking. Additionally, I would like to encourage conversation and advocacy among students regarding the state of psychology as a profession and help students navigate the new technological era of psychotherapy.

Student members are welcome and encouraged to join and connect via the student listserv, which is the hub of communication for all things related to students in Division 29. I also encourage you to reach out to me personally to learn more about becoming involved in the Student Development Committee and Division 29!
