My plan was to write this third Presidential Column immediately after APA Convention, so that I could report, first hand, on what was sure to be a satisfying, productive, and festive set of events for our Society.

Wow! As I start this year as your President, I am awed by all we are doing. We just had our winter Board of Directors meeting. What a great meeting, with a great group of people. We are an increasingly diverse group in so many different respects. Yet, when we sit down to work, we […]

It is November, and like the nation, we are making transitions in governance. Unlike the nation, ours is proceeding smoothly and without drama. In January Dr. Jeff Zimmerman will assume the Presidency, Dr. Michael Constantino will become President-elect, and I will move to Past-president. Dr. Rod Goodyear will be retiring from the Executive Committee but […]

By far the most significant and far-reaching achievement since I wrote three months ago has been the pact made between Oriental Insight (OI) and our Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy (SAP). OI is an organization of Chinese psychologists who wish to partner with us for mutual benefit. The partnership aims: To increase exchange between […]
