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

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.”

Assistant Professor, Teaches and Coordinates Internships for Students in the Health Information Management Program

Sabine Simmons
2015, Doctor of Education, Organizational Leadership, Argosy University, Online Programs
Assistant Professor, Alabama State University

“The information I learned [in the program was] key to my current position and will [prepare] me to successfully navigate through the upper levels of education administration and organizational leadership.”

Sabine Simmons is an assistant professor at Alabama State University. She teaches a wide range of courses within the curriculum and participates in faculty development activities, student advisement, curriculum updates, student recruitment, and planning.  Sabine also gives interdisciplinary lectures for allied healthcare students—and utilizes Blackboard LMS to facilitate online and traditional instruction. She helps to secure affiliation agreements with accredited healthcare institutions for clinical placement and practicum experiences for students in the school’s Health Information Management program. 

Additionally, she meets with clinical instructors to gain insight on improving outcomes of the internship process and experience—while assessing the quality and success of the internship program. She started her career working as an instructor in health information management. “At that time, I had a Master’s [degree]. Once I realized that it was necessary to further my education in order to be promoted in the field of academia, I began [pursuing a] Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership because of the flexible and supportive environment at Argosy University, Online Programs,” she says.

Her professional accomplishments include being awarded the "Outstanding New Professional" award from the Alabama Association of Health Information Management (AAHIM) in 2011. She’s also been invited to co-author a text book on ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases) coding by Paradigm Publishing, which is set for release in December of 2017. Sabine is also a member of the Parent Teacher Association at E. D. Nixon Elementary School, serves as a faculty senate member at Alabama State University, and as the student relations committee chair on the AAHIM board. “I am also a volunteer mentor in the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).”

She recommends that current students absorb what they’re learning—“do not commit it to your short term memory [just] to pass a class. Integrate your learning into your life and future endeavors.” Sabine adds that in school, quantitative statistics class provided a real challenge to her. “Although I did fail the first time, I worked closely with my professor to overcome the challenge.” 

In 2015, Sabine earned a Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership from Argosy University, Online Programs. She chose to pursue the degree because of the school’s supportive environment—and she knew that she needed a Doctor level degree to advance in her occupation. “The admissions and financial aid representative made many processes go smoothly, and there was a ground campus nearby so that I could participate in graduation.”

She adds that learning online allowed her to conveniently earn the degree, while gaining “volumes of content related to leading an organization, including conflict management and change management. The information I learned was key to my current position and will [allow] me to successfully navigate through the levels of education administration.” With her degree, she’s now qualified to teach graduate courses as an adjunct at other Universities. 

In addition to the knowledge gained at Argosy University, Online Programs, Sabine says that her instructors made lasting impacts upon her. “My dissertation chair and first writing professor [really made a difference]. The professor of my first writing course taught me the skills I needed to write scholarly material. My dissertation chair help me to utilize this skill and guided me through one of the toughest processes I have ever encountered (the dissertation process).”
