I have had the opportunity to meetwith almost every student currently enrolled inour program on campus and communicate viaemails or phones with multiple interns and alums who are away. I continue to be impressedwith your motivation and hard work towardyour learning and growth, and your care andvalue for our program.Upon arriving to Springfield College, I quickly learned that our program has gone throughchanges and transitions in the past years,which is still ongoing. I understand that whilechanges and transitions are exciting, they often come with ambiguity and tension. Ambiguity and tension, however, are other names forgrowth, development, and innovation.Throughout the last few months, I certainlywitnessed the positive energy and great potential in our program to make a new leap forward. That is, the first seven years of the program were the era to create the ground of theprogram; now we are in this exciting time ofmoving into the next seven years which will bethe new era to consolidate the foundation upon which we will build up new ideas and systems.base for all practicum sites has been updated; we hosted a luncheon for practicum supervisors and another for current and futurepracticum students; and we searched for anew faculty member to join in the fall 2020!This list is not exhaustive.

I wanted to teach counseling psychology because it fits with my values. It’s rewarding to work with doctoral students. I always wanted to come to the Northeast because my family is from the area.What has been the most exciting aspectabout directing the program so far?Establishing a young program has room tohave visions. I’m a dreamer. I like planning,and thinking about what we can do next year.I really enjoy working with my fellows as ateam. Since this is an APA-accredited program, I feel connected to the nationwide organization and enjoy getting national support.Page 3 of 14What aspects of practicing counseling psychology resonate with you the most?Counseling psychology matches well with myvalues of human development. I see the clientas a holistic person, not just as a patient. Inthe medical approach, the problem exists inthe individual with an effort to cure the person, but I have a sociocultural perspective. Isee the person as a part of the environment,as part of society.Fun facts?My undergraduate degree was nothing to dowith psychology, but French! I also lived inFrance when I was doing my undergrad. Injunior high, I heard an interesting languagethat sounded rhythmical and wanted to learnthe language! I went to a high school that focused on language and majored in French, soI did it in undergraduate too. My first professional job after my bachelor’s degree was inadvertisement. I was a copy writer, writing thelines and story of commercial film.

Counseling Psychology PsyD ProgramFall 2019Springfield College at the APA Conference2019 American Psychological Association ConventionAugust 8-11, 2019 Chicago, ILPhil ImholteI'm happy I went to APA. My intention forgoing was to reacquaint myself with theoriginal feelings (e.g., curiosity, a sense ofpossibility) that led me to the field of psychology. It's safe to say I found those feelings in going to sessions I was interestedin, presenting my in-progress dissertationwith a few peers (with the help of Dr. Hage),and exploring Chicago. I also took home anew sense of psychology as a field -- it'sbig, and also, it's not that big. I'm guessingone of the most memorable parts will bethe debriefs Shawn Saylors and I hadthroughout the conference, which includedhelping each other prep for our presentation and our predictions for our future inthe field. Financially speaking, I spent asmall fortune to fund the trip -- one which Itechnically could not "afford." However,when I decided to go (I took the train to cutdown costs), I figured that if I had followedthe "can-I-afford-this?" logic a few yearsearlier, I wouldn't have come to study psychology in the first place. It's possible I'mdue for a corrective experience. Here's tohoping I'm not.Left to right: Marcus Dumas, Phil Imholte, Dr. Sally Hage, Julie Freedman,and Shawn SaylorsShawn SaylorsThe American Psychological Association is an annual conference bringing professionals and students in the field ofpsychology together to discuss best practices, techniques, and the future of the field. It is a chance to see expertstalk about their craft, network with other students and professionals, and catch up with previous professors andfriends. This year the conference was held in Chicago, IL, and I had the opportunity to present with fellow Springfield colleagues on the area of college mental health, which is a domain I am passionate about. In particular, Ispoke about incorporating an integrative health-care model to colleges and universities and how to implementmore preventative measures to aid in mental health services. Additionally, I was able to present a poster on my dissertation that focused on identity and transition to the division on military psychology. It was a great experience topresent something I am passionate about as well as a fantastic networking opportunity to speak with professionalsin the field who are also interested in similar work. I would recommend to everyone to present at a conference because not only does allow you to grow personally and professionally, it allows others to see the fruits of our laborand further strengthen the Springfield College name.Page 6 of 14

Counseling Psychology PsyD ProgramFall 2019The Conference Experience80th Annual National Convention of the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) —Scott AndersonThis year the CPA National Conference was held in Halifax Nova Scotiaat the end of May. My goal in attending the conference was to networkwith Canadian psychologists andlearn more about my upcoming internship application. Having been toseveral conferences in the UnitedStates, I was surprised by how thisCPA conference was much more research orientated. My conferenceitinerary included a full day workshoptitled “The Emerging and ChangingPractice of Police Psychology in aCanadian Context,” which helped meaccomplish my goal of networkingwith police psychologists as I see mycareer focusing on first responders.Conversations with police psychologists provided me unique insightsinto what my career may include andfurther reinforced my passion andinterest in working with first responders. I also attended presentations that included discussions regarding selfcare, neurofeedback, and trauma. Within the internship workshops I learned valuable information regarding how totailor my experiences to best match the internship sites As a result I made adjustments to my practicum experience to specialize my assessment case load on adults instead of children to ensure that I had adequate experience interpreting and scoring psychological assessments for adults. In conclusion, I would recommend the CPANational Conference to anyone who has an interest in research and would like an opportunity to expand their understanding of the Canadian psychological community and create relationships within that community. In the future I would like to see more direct translation of theory into practice and more workshops geared towards thepractice of psychology, not just the study of psychology. Overall a fantastic and insightful experience!Save the Date: 6th Annual Association for Applied SportPsychology (AASP) Northeast Regional ConferencePage 8 of 14The AASP Northeast Regional Conferencewill be hosted at Springfield College fromMarch 6-7, 2020.
