Opportunities for Students and Alumni

To all students in psychology and related disciplines: SEPI NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!

To all students in psychology and related disciplines: SEPI NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!

As a graduate student in clinical psychology, I’m reaching out in order to ask for your support.

A little over 30 years ago, the Society for the Exploration for Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI), was founded to pursue two missions:  One was to increase a dialogue between therapists from varying theoretical orientations, and the other was to close the gap between research and practice.  Historically, SEPI has focused more on the former than the latter, However, we have recently made the decision that closing the clinical-research gap is a goal we need to pursue more vigorously– not just to have researchers disseminate findings to clinicians, but to have clinicians disseminate clinical observations to researchers as well. In order to achieve this important goal, we need the support of students who will be the researchers and clinicians of tomorrow. I’m writing to ask for your support in pursuing SEPI’s missions by helping us to recruit new student members.

There are a number of unique advantages to being a student member of SEPI:

  • Attend yearly conferences at reduced rates. SEPI conferences are a unique celebration of differences as well as similarities, where CBT, psychodynamic, experiential, and integrative therapists learn from each other, and where dissemination of information is a two-way street between practitioner and researcher. SEPI conferences also provide networking opportunities with leaders in research and practice who are eager to interact with students.  Our next (2015) conference is in Baltimore (June 18-21), with the theme: “Integration in Action: Where Practice and Research Converge.” The 2016 conference will be held in Dublin.
  • Receive the quarterly Journal of Psychotherapy Integration (JPI), which includes articles describing how psychotherapy integration can be put into practice clinically and studied empirically. It also has periodic reviews of basic research that can enhance the clinical effectiveness of one’s interventions (e.g. how interpersonal perception research findings can be used by therapists).
  • Be eligible for travel grants of up to $1,000 to attend the annual conference.
  • Have free research consultation at annual conferences.
  • Receive stipends for presenting at conferences.
  • Be eligible for the Dissertation Research Award.
  • Participate in periodic webinars, where you can interact with leaders in the field.
  • Have access to the online membership directory.
  • Receive the electronic SEPI newsletter.

You can learn more about the benefits of being a student member of SEPI, and join on line (dues for students are members are only $29) at:  http://www.sepiweb.org/Login.aspx

The qualification for student membership is enrollment at an undergraduate or post-graduate academic institution. Membership is for the calendar year. If you join during a year, you will receive all Journals published during that year.

Thanks for your time,

Jessica Latack, on behalf of the SEPI Membership Committee: Maria Gilbert and Marv Goldfried (Co-Chairs), Martin Grosse Holtforth, and Hanna Levenson
