Orientation to Division 29 Governance
Welcome to the Division
Welcome to the Division of Psychotherapy, Division 29 of the American Psychological
Association (APA). We are excited about having you as a part of the governance. It is
your dedication to the field of psychology and to psychotherapy that will be integral to
promoting the continued success of Division 29.
This orientation manual will provide you with a brief overview of the operations of this
division’s governance. We hope that this will help you navigate the ins and outs of Divi-
sion 29 governance and make it easier for you to feel comfortable as you begin to
make your valued contributions to the Division. Please refer to the Policies and Proce-
dures Manual for more in-depth discussion of each point in this document. This manual
is sent to each member of the governance group at the beginning of each year.
Many newly elected and appointed members to Division 29 governance wonder why
they were invited to be a part of the governance structure. We want to make it very
clear that you were invited because you were perceived to be someone who had some-
thing important to contribute. That is why we want to help you get acquainted with the
structure of Division 29 and begin feeling comfortable bringing your contributions to the
table. And of course, you should always feel free to ask questions.
Organizational Chart
Appended to this document you can find an organizational chart for the division. This
chart will help you to learn about the structure of the governance and where you fit in.
Also appended to this document is a complete list of our governance members and their
contact information.
The Division’s governance generally communicates with each other through email and
through our governance listserv. As a member of the governance, you are added to
the listserv and remain on it through your term. If you would like to send a message to
the listserv, the address is: This listserv includes all govern-
ance members, both elected and appointed. If you would like to send a message to
only the voting members of the board, please contact the administrator for instructions
or assistance. Individual emails can be found on the governance list on the website.
There typically are two in-person governance meetings each year, one in January or
February (referred to as the Midwinter meeting) and one in the Fall. All voting members
of the Board and the Publications Chair are expected to attend both of these meetings.
Committee chair attendance at these meetings is by invitation only, subject to financial
considerations. Be sure to watch for governance listserve messages that will clarify who
is being invited to each meeting. Individuals who are authorized to attend are reim-
bursed, according to the Division’s guidelines, for their attendance.
All participants in attendance at meetings are encouraged to share their perspectives,
regardless of voting status or the amount of time served in Division governance. The
Division leadership would like to encourage you to feel comfortable participating ac-
tively from the beginning. The input and perspective of all participants at meetings is
valued and respected.
Keesey’s Modern Parliamentary Procedure is followed at meetings. For an abridged ver-
sion of Keesey’s Modern Parliamentary Procedure please go to http:// Additionally, a summary chart can be found at

Mentoring Program
Each new board member and committee chair is assigned a mentor for the year. The
President-elect, in collaboration with the Administrator, is responsible for assigning
mentors. This task will be accomplished no later than the December prior to the start
of the new governance year. Mentors and mentees are encouraged to speak before the
first in-person board meeting so that the mentor can help orient the new person. They
are encouraged to sit together at the board meetings, so that the mentor can answer
questions and provide support and guidance.
Officers for the Division are elected by the members of the division. They include the
President, President-elect, Past-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. These officers to-
gether make up the Executive Committee of the Division 29 Board and they are voting
members of the board. Terms of office can be found on the inside front cover of the
Psychotherapy Bulletin and in the governance list on the website. Newly elected offi-
cers are seated on January 2 of each year.
Council Representatives
Council Representatives are elected by the members of the division. They serve three
year terms on the APA Council of Representatives, where they represent the interests
of Division 29. They are voting members of the Division 29 Board.
Domain Representatives
Domain representatives are voting members of the board, elected by the membership,
who oversee all activities related to a particular area of professional focus. Domains in-
clude: Diversity, Psychotherapy Practice, Early Career, Membership, Public Policy and
Social Justice, Science and Scholarship, and Education and Training. The Domain Rep-
resentatives are responsible for contributing to the midyear and annual reports. They
also ensure that appropriate contributions representing their domains are submitted as
scheduled for Psychotherapy Bulletin. They serve as conduits for their respective Com-
mittee Chairs to communicate committee issues to the Board
Committee Chairs
Under each domain, there are one or more committees. All committee chairs and mem-
bers of committees must be members of Division 29 as mandated by our bylaws. Asso-
ciate Chairs of committees are appointed by the President-elect of the Board, with a
vote of approval by the Board. These individuals then become Chairs of their respective
committees during the year the President-elect becomes President. Committee Chairs
are nonvoting members of the governance who carry out the tasks of the relevant do-
main and report to their respective Domain Representatives. Committee Chairs, in col-
laboration with their Domain Representative, are encouraged to present a slate for
committee membership (including members and student representatives, all of whom
must be members of the Division) to the President for his/her approval. Committee
Chairs are expected to send minutes or notes of their meetings and conference calls to
the Administrator and President. It is helpful for Committee Chairs to orient Associate
Chairs to the specific roles and responsibilities for their respective committee. Commit-
tee membership can be solicited via email, phone calls, etc. to potential students/
members. A sample email may contain the following information:
Dear Colleagues,

I am the 2009 Chair of the (insert committee) of the American Psychological Associa-
tion’s (APA) Division 29 (Division of Psychotherapy). I am contacting you because I am
in the process of expanding this committee and hoping to encourage colleagues and
students to become increasingly involved in APA as a whole, and Division 29 specifi-

As such, I am writing to ask if you are interested in serving on the (insert) Committee.
Your involvement would include:

1) Joining Division 29 ($40 for full APA members, $20 for students) and reaping
benefits of such membership (journal subscription, e-newsletter, student awards,
etc), if you are not already a member
2) Participating in about 4 teleconference committee meetings per year,
3) Assisting with the development and growth of this committee and D29 as a
whole, and
4) Having the potential to become more involved in other portions of governance
Division 29.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested via email or phone. You could also
find out more about D29 by visiting the website: http://

Publications Board
The Division’s Publications Board oversees all of the division’s publications: the quar-
terly, refereed journal Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training; the quar-
terly newsletter, Psychotherapy Bulletin; our website; and, any other publications that
the division disseminates (brochures, etc). The Publications Board consists of six mem-
bers, each appointed for staggered six-year terms. The Chair of the Publications Board
is a member of the Executive Committee, ex-officio and without vote.
The scholarly, peer-reviewed journal of the division, which is published by the APA, is
entitled Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training. The division’s quarterly
newsletter is Psychotherapy Bulletin. Due dates for submissions to the Bulletin are Feb-
ruary 1, May 1, July 1, and November 1. Psychotherapy E-News is a quarterly an-
nounce-only listserv that provides members with up-to-date information about the divi-
sion. Due dates for submission are January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1. All sub-
missions are to be send to the editor.
Please visit the Division of Psychotherapy’s website,
The website is the division’s information portal and is coordinated by a web editor and
webmaster. The website has valuable information regarding governance, including:
contact information; bylaws; publications (Psychotherapy Bulletin); reimbursement
form (see the bottom of the Governance page for the link); membership and fellows in-
formation; the upcoming Division 29 Special Program Schedule for APA; and other re-
lated areas. Feel free to make suggestions about the website to the Webmaster and
don’t hesitate to send material directly to the Webmaster if you would like to see it
posted on the website.

Conference Calls
There is a weekly conference call of the President, Past President, President-elect, and
Administrator. There are quarterly conference calls with the Executive Committee of the
Board. Minutes of these President conference calls are sent out via the governance
listserve in order to keep governance membership updated on pertinent issues. Other
conference calls of the governance may be scheduled if needed. Domain Representa-
tives or Committee Chairs also may schedule conference calls to help carry out their
duties and the work of their Domain and/or Committee. All calls should be scheduled
with the Administrator.
Presidential Initiatives
Each year, the division President may have one or more initiatives that guide some of
the activities of the governance group. These typically are laid out in their platform
when they seek office. The President articulates these initiatives in his or her communi-
cations with the governance and the membership. The presidential initiatives are noted
on the website and are generally elaborated on in the Bulletin.
The Division offers a number of awards. Appended to this document is a chart that lists
each award, the financial remuneration associated with the award, who is responsible
for soliciting potential awardees, and the timeframe for both solicitation and decision-
making. A list of past recipients for all awards can be found on the division’s website.
Social Events at APA
In addition to the Division 29 Business Meeting and Awards Ceremony that is held dur-
ing the APA Annual Convention (see the Division 29 Special Program listing on the Divi-
sion 29 website) , there is also a Division 29 Social Hour held each year that immedi-
ately follows the awards ceremony. Please join us for both these events. A complete list
of Division 29 events and programming at the APA Convention is printed in the #3 is-
sue of each Bulletin, and is also included on the website.
