President’s Message

Greetings,

Welcome to the American Academy of Couple and Family Psychology. This year has been very exciting with the Academy working very closely with Division 43 and the American Board of Couple and Family Psychology. Strong emphasis and efforts have gone into recruiting early career psychologists to become board certified. We have awarded our first grant which supports early career psychologists and academics in couple and family psychology!

This coming year, we will continue to develop the recognition of board certification as the standard of care for psychologists treating couples and families, recruiting early career psychologists, and continuing the collaborative relationships with systemic training programs in psychology.

Our academy is excited to announce that we are having a joint conference with the American Academy of Forensic Psychology November 14-18th, 2018 in Portland, Oregon.

I look forward to seeing you all there as we advance the recognition of board certification as the standard of care for couples and families.

Christen A. Carson, PhD, ABPP

President, AACFP
