Goodheart, EdD, is a scholar-practitioner in independent practice in  Princeton, N.J. Her career integrates practice, research and service to  psychology.

Background: Before  becoming a psychologist, Goodheart trained as a nurse. She worked in  urban emergency medicine and intensive care, as well as rural public  health on two Native American reservations. She earned her doctorate in  counseling psychology from Rutgers University, and she specializes in  the treatment of individuals, couples and families coping with physical  diseases or disabilities. In addition to her practice, she has served at  Rutgers University's Graduate School of Applied and Professional  Psychology in a number of roles: clinical supervisor, contributing  faculty and committee on continuing education. She is a founding partner  of two organizations: PsychHealth, P.A., a multi-specialty mental health  practice offering treatment services, program design and consultation,  primarily in health psychology, and W2W, L.L.C., dedicated to the  development and dissemination of materials designed to build strengths,  promote health, and enhance quality of life for women. She has been a  leader in APA for almost two decades.

She served as the APA Treasurer and as a member of the Board  of Directors for the past six years. Previously, she chaired the Finance  Committee, Policy and Planning Board, and the Task Force on  Evidence-Based Practice; she also co-chaired the Task Force on Health  and the Congressional Initiative on Serious Illness. She served on the  Council of Representatives from both a division (Psychotherapy) and a  state (N.J.).

Anderson; senior adviser to the Advisory Council on Genetics;  president of APA's largest division (Psychologists in Independent  Practice); trustee of the APA Insurance Trust; and a board member of  Women in Psychology for Legislative Action.

Goodheart's candidate statement

Every president must articulate the essential challenges, envision where  APA needs to go, work on concrete strategies to get there, serve as a  good steward and pave the way for the next generation. I pledge  effective leadership to fulfill those duties and advance initiatives  central to members: economics, advocacy, diversity and partnerships.

There are four key areas for APA growth:

  • Economic strides. We  must address our members' career needs more directly.  Career-building support is a practice issue, a science issue, an  education issue, a diversity issue and an early-career issue. We  must create stronger methods for success in competitive health care,  business, education and research funding environments. We need  national summit planning, such as the 2009 Practice Summit I am  co-chairing. Also, we need reliable, diversified revenue streams for  APA so that we can meet members' needs without raising dues.

  • Advocacy. Psychology  has great messages, but we need more messengers. It is vital that we  share psychological science and keep our seats at legislative and  regulatory tables.

  • Diversity. We  must advocate inside and outside psychology to improve intergroup  relations and value diversity. We must collaborate with other  organizations that share our goals and with psychology organizations  in other countries that share our vision.

  • Partnerships. We  must improve the way the public looks at psychology by refining our  strategies and focus. Our common purpose is to generate and use  knowledge for change. One powerful way to focus our influence is to  develop a think tank designed to advance psychology's agenda by  creating a new partnership among psychologists with diverse  perspectives.

I am honored to be a candidate for APA President and ask for your No. 1  vote. Learn more about a progressive agenda
