San Francisco Bay Area Grad Dr. Rousmaniere Publishes Guide for Psychotherapists
San Francisco Bay Area Grad Dr. Rousmaniere Publishes Guide for Psychotherapists

Dr. Tony Rousmaniere, who in 2008 earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | San Francisco Bay Area, recently published Deliberate Practice for Psychotherapists: A Guide to Improving Clinical Effectiveness.  The book explores how psychotherapists can use deliberate practice to improve their clinical effectiveness. A summary of the work says that “by sourcing through decades of research on how experts in diverse fields achieve skill mastery, the author proposes it is possible for any therapist to dramatically improve their effectiveness. However, achieving expertise isn’t easy. To improve, therapists must focus on clinical challenges and reconsider century-old methods of clinical training from the ground up.”

 

Dr. Rousmaniere’s book presents a step-by-step program to improve clinical effectiveness across the therapists’ entire career.

 

Dr. Rousmaniere is a member of the clinical faculty at the University of Washington, Seattle where he also maintains a private practice. He provides clinical supervision for advanced post-graduate psychotherapists internationally (United States, Australia, Asia, England, and Europe) and serves on committees for the Society for Advancement of Psychotherapy (American Psychological Association Division 29) and the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association.

Argosy University honored in Military Advanced Education & Transition's 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities
Argosy University honored in Military Advanced Education & Transition's 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities

ORANGE, CALIF. (Jan. 12, 2017) – Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) has awarded Argosy University, with 28 campus locations in 13 states and online, with the designation of a Top School in its 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education.

 

Now in its tenth year of publishing the Guide, MAE&T evaluated institutions on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services.

 

“MAE&T’s Guide to Colleges and Universities provides the foundational information a prospective student would use in framing his or her educational needs,” said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition’s editor-in-chief.

 

Students have access to the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information.

 

“There are many different variables by which you could evaluate an institution, but we focus on the best practices that have been asserted by various higher education groups and reinforced by veteran groups. These best practices assure students that they have a high chance of success and support at their school of choice,” said Fodel. “That’s why we consider our survey to be the most detailed and informative in the industry.”
