The theme for the Mid Winter Society of Consulting Psychology Conference was, “Fit to Consult? Strengthen-Stretch-Test.” Important and pressing questions were asked such as “What are we doing to increase the rigor of our coaching and consulting services?” and “What methods and metrics can build excellence in our evolving world of professional practice?”

We would like to congratulate our faculty on their achievements!
