Message from the President

I previously avoided the temptation to write about how we can apply our unique position as psychologists in independent practice to shape and contribute to the future. I hope you will bear with me if I take that opportunity now. Much of what I write is not based on expert training or understanding of health care service delivery, of health care economics or economics generally. But I do write from the experience of having provided psychological and health services for 22 years now since being licensed, and on a full time independent basis for 14 years.
