James H Bray, PhD for APA President
Proven Leadership You Can Trust
Thanks for your support.  Congratulations to Dr. Donald Bersoff who won the election
I am running for APA President to continue to get things done for YOU and our profession. In 2009 we began some very important work with the Future of Psychology Practice and Science initiatives that need to be continued and expanded. I have the knowledge, experience and established working relationships with governance, APA staff and Members of Congress to get things done. 

Unlike other candidates, there will be no learning curve for me.  I know how to be an effective President and can focus efforts on getting more things accomplished for YOU and our profession.  My track record is clear and compelling—just take a look at the 

2009 APA Annual Report.

 



Economic Viability.  The Future of Psychology Practice Task Force recommended a strong focus on the economic viability of psychologists to protect the current generation of private practitioners who provide assessments and psychotherapy, while continuing to transition to new models of practice.  We cannot accomplish this without a strong APA Practice Organization.

 

Science Issues. The new Congress has taken aim at behavioral science funding. This is a veiled attempt to undermine psychological science at a time when understanding the integration of behavior, genetics and neuroscience are at a critical juncture and vital to our national interests.  We need to fight this with strong advocacy from all psychologists. Further, we need to continue to solidify psychological science as a core STEM discipline. 

 

Education and Public Interest. New educational models to train the next generation of practitioners and scientists are needed to be successful in the changing health care and academic environments.  We need to attract a diverse group of the best and brightest students into our field.  We must address the financial burdens of training and the internship and post-doctoral crisis.


Women in Leadership. In psychology and other professions women are becoming the majority, yet leadership does not often reflect this change. We need to use our science and knowledge to develop methods to support women becoming leaders in their respective fields.





Thank you for your #1 vote.
