Level of Familiarity: Basic

The goal of this moderated panel is to help students and early career psychologists tailor career paths in clinical psychology to meet their professional and personal goals. The panelists are seasoned clinical psychologists with successful careers in five types of settings: (1) medical school, (2) research university, (3) liberal arts college, (4) Veterans Affairs, and (5) private practice. In different career tracks, the panelists are all actively involved in ABCT and in furthering ABCT’s mission to advance scientific approaches to “the understanding and improvement of human functioning” by investigating and applying evidence-based principles in clinical psychology. Therefore, the audience will learn about different pathways and approaches toward a career that is consistent with the fundamental professional values of ABCT and its members. The panelists will reflect on their own professional experiences and will address issues such as: How did you choose your career path? What advice do you have for a junior colleague or student considering that path? Is there anything unique about your position? What do you value most about your position and what might you change if you could? In your role, how do you balance your professional and personal lives? In addition, a large portion of time will be reserved for questions so that audience members have the opportunity to inquire about specific issues relevant to their professional development in a forum that will benefit others with similar considerations.
