Licensed Psychologist Position Open at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, CO

11/17/2011

Announcing a full time, very well paying position at Fort Carson, Colorado in Colorado Springs.

The psychologist needs to be licensed, but I'm not sure if it has to be Colorado, although Colorado is pretty easy to get licensed in. The company recruiting is listed below, which I have forwarded to you. I worked for them for 3 years and they are great. They pay $50 per hour and you are an employee with benefits. Extra hours are often available as well. Great team to work with. The therapy and assessments are with active duty soldiers, many having been deployed. EMDR and experience in trauma is helpful. It is a contract position. Elsa Quiroga is contact at e-mail below. Thanks for your help. I know Saybrook has graduates around the country, and Zeitgeist supplies psychologists for military installations around the country, so they could be a good source for your grads. Thanks for your help. Hope everything is going well at Saybrook. I have fond memories of my years in the psychology programs there.

Aloha, Dr. Dea Coschignano, Ph.D. Saybrook '00

Position Available as Psychologist Research Coordinator University of Rhode Island

11/01/2011

Psychologist Research Coordinator

South County Child and Family Consultants/LearningWorks for Kids is looking for a unique individual who can combine clinical, research and managerial skills. This will be a half-time position that combines conducting clinical work at South County Child and Family Consultants, joining our multidisciplinary research team and supervising a team of interns from the University of Rhode Island through LearningWorks for Kids. The position is ideal for a recent Ph.D who needs clinical supervision hours for licensure, would like to publish, and has an interest and expertise in education and business development.

The clinical portion of the job will consist of conducting psychological evaluations with children and working as part of a larger clinical team that develops recommendations for children with learning, attention, and executive-functioning difficulties. The clinical position will require basic familiarity with a range of psychological test measures, including the WISC-IV, WAIS-IV, and some common neuropsychological measures. Additional training and supervision in the area of testing will be available. Psychologists do not need to be licensed for this position, as they will be closely supervised by the clinical director of South County Child and Family Consultants. Weekly supervision by a licensed clinical psychologist will be provided in order to assist the person in moving towards licensure.

The research and managerial component is through LearningWorks for Kids, an educational consulting company that develops curricula for teaching children executive-functioning and academic skills through their involvement with video games and other digital technologies. This position requires good organizational skills, the capacity to multi-task, and excellent interpersonal skills. The research coordinator will supervise approximately 10 undergraduate and graduate students from The University of Rhode Island and become part of a management team that is taking LearningWorks for Kids to market. The successful applicant will need to have a level of interest and expertise in digital technologies. Applicants do not need to be avid video-game players but should be well-versed in using a variety of digital technologies, including cell phones, iPods, and the Internet. This is a great opportunity to join a very active research team in an emerging area of study, with numerous publication opportunities and possible evolution into a full-time position.

The research component will include participating in a series of studies that are exploring the role of video games and other digital technologies with children who have attentional, learning and social/emotional difficulties. We have 2 ongoing studies of assessment tools that have developed to examine executive functioning skills in children. We also have many ongoing projects that require data analysis and discussion to get them ready for publication and presentations.

Compensation for this position is in the mid $20K range based upon experience, degree, and hours. The individual selected for this position will also have an opportunity to have additional earnings through involvement as a start-up member of the LearningWorks for Kids team.

The setting: South County Child and Family Consultants/LearningWorks for Kids is located in coastal Rhode Island, approximately 10 minutes from the beach.

Visit our sites at: www.southcountychildandfamily.com and www.learningworksforkids.com.

Alumna Myrna Araneta, Ph.D. '09 Presented Paper at the People Management Association of the Philippines Conference, October 12-14, 2011

11/01/2011

Alumna Myrna Araneta,Ph.D.'09 Presented: How can Leaders and Managers create an environment for People Engagement and Internal Change? at the:
People Management Association of the Philippines Conference
October 12-14, 2011

Drawing from business and new scientific (physics) research, this session unpacked these strategic questions:
1. Why leaders/managers need to engage the “same people” to do business differently in this global economy?
2. What is Employee Engagement, what is at its core?
3. Under what conditions do people become “engaged” (commit) to a course of change and action?
4. What is internal change and why this is needed to succeed in transforming our contributions to succeeding in this global economy?

Practical Implications for revising our current business paradigm that tries to change business outcomes by changing physical actions through reengineering, motivating employees and other means of optimizing processes or cutting prices of products may not be sufficient to get us the results we desire.

In this session, the urgency to embed this core scientific research into the heart of our culture was emphasized.

A Plea from the Ethical Coalition of Psychology to Get Psychology Out of the Business of Torture

11/01/2011

Friends,

Help sign on to get psychology out of the business of torture.

It just takes a minute.

Peace,

Marc

Marc Pilisuk, Ph.D.
Professor Emeritus, The University of California
Professor, Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center

Dear Colleagues,

The Coalition for an Ethical Psychology is spearheading a call for annulment of the American Psychological Association’s deeply flawed 2005 Presidential Task Force Report on Psychological Ethics and National Security (PENS).

The key conclusion of the PENS Report – despite clear evidence to the contrary – is that psychologists play a critical role in keeping national security detainee interrogations “safe, legal, ethical and effective.” The PENS Report continues to be used as an authoritative document today, especially in national security contexts. Leading human rights groups and professionals from a range of fields – including psychology, medicine, law, military, and intelligence –have therefore joined together in this important annulment effort.

Below is the brief petition statement, along with the names of organizations and individuals that have been “early signers” to the call. A background statement with detailed documentation is available online at:

www.ethicalpsychology.org/PENS_Annulment_Background_Statement.pdf

We are now reaching out to professionals from a variety of disciplines and the general public because we believe this is a critical human rights issue with ramifications that extend far beyond psychology alone. We hope you will join this initiative, and there are two valuable ways that you can contribute:

1. Please add your name to the annulment call at www.ethicalpsychology.org/pens
http://www.ethicalpsychology.org/pens

2. Please share this email and accompanying information with your professional colleagues through listservs and personal correspondence, so that they too have the opportunity to sign on.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Roy Eidelson, on behalf of the Coalition for an Ethical Psychology
