Education and Training Committee

The Education and Training Committee serves to integrate and provide information on training opportunities in Rehabilitation Psychology, at the doctoral, internship, and fellowship levels. The Committee also makes available information to members on funding mechanisms and administrative structures related to such training. Drs. William Stiers and Kirk Stucky have been instrumental in developing these resources.

The Committee, under its previous Chair, Dr. David Patterson, has developed and published training guidelines for Rehabilitation Psychology.

The Committee, through the work of Dr. Kathleen S. Brown, has developed and made available a list of Key Readings in Rehabilitation Psychology.

The Committee maintains a liaison with the APA Board of Educational Affairs to integrate Rehabilitation Psychology activities, interests, and goals with the broader APA efforts in education and training.
