Domain Representative for Psychotherapy Practice: Candidate Statements

Amy Ellis, PhD

It is a privilege to be nominated for Psychotherapy Practice Domain Representative for the Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy (SfAP). My role within SfAP has evolved over time – initially as the Associate Editor of the Website, and later nominated for Editor of the Website. I have come full circle and am the current Publications & Communications Board Chair. My respect and passion for the Society’s journal and electronic communications is exemplified by my hands-on approach and my continued commitment to generating great content for our members and non-members. To that end, our team is working to make the website even more user friendly given that there are over 800 free articles, often expanding upon the great content in Psychotherapy, our official journal publication.

If elected as Domain Representative, my goal will be to create resources on psychotherapy for underserved populations who may also not be studied often in graduate programs. I intend to create tip sheets, videos, and case vignettes with the aim of helping psychotherapists foster treatment engagement, reduce barriers to and within therapy, and to enhance care that is both evidence-based and individualized for various populations.

My commitment to psychotherapy practice is in my career trajectory. I am the Director of the Trauma Resolution and Integration Program and an Assistant Professor at Nova Southeastern University, and also have a small private practice. My clinical and research interests focus on underserved populations who have increased exposure and risk to trauma, tailoring evidence-based trauma treatments, and training and supervision.

Arlene (Lu) Steinberg, PsyD

As a clinician in practice for over 35 years I am committed to issues related to Practice. Given the many technological changes that have occurred and are ongoing with implications for practice, including the most recent greater move to virtual, looking for ways to ensure good care and beneficial aspects, while minimizing the negative is paramount.

Also, for ways to extend practice to those with greater need, as social justice concerns have always been important to me. I would be honored to serve SfAP as a Domain Representative for Professional Practice.
