The Society of Consulting Psychology named Distinguished Professor Rodney L. Lowman, CSPP Organizational Psychology Programs as the recipient of the 2014 Society of Consulting Psychology Exemplary Impact Commendation.


JANUARY 6, 2014—The Society of Consulting Psychology has named David Peterson, PhD, as recipient of the 2014 RHR International Award for Excellence in Consultation. This award is given annually to an individual with a distinguished career in the practice of consulting psychology, and it is funded by the consulting firm RHR International. It honors a founding member, Perry L. Rohrer, who epitomized the standards of excellence that RHR and the society seek to perpetuate.  The Awards Committee pointed to Dr. Peterson’s work with some of the nation’s most influential corporations and the model of commitment that makes a real difference for those organizations.  Nominators cited his stature as an international thought leader on the subject of individual interventions and praised Dr. Peterson’s willingness to share his perspectives and expertise with professional colleagues in a variety of settings.

The Society’s newest award, the Leadership Worth Following Award for Excellence in Developing Consulting Psychologists, will go to John Fennig, PhD, as a result of tangible and consistent investment in the development of students, early career practitioners and/or other consultants who are making the transition into the field of consulting psychology.  Dr. Fennig’s personal dedication to developing consulting psychologists is perhaps most evident in the internship training program that he has set up within his own consulting practice, and he also is well-known as generous and willing mentor to colleagues.  This award also carries a stipend to support an initiative focused on “developing others,” that will be carried out over the coming year. 

Rodney Lowman, CSPP Organizational Psychology Program

The Society also has named Rodney L. Lowman, PhD as the recipient of the 2014 Society of Consulting Psychology Exemplary Impact Commendation.  This special commendation is awarded when members of the Society are noted to have made unusual and significant contributions to a client, the public, or to the profession over a period of at least two years. In honoring Dr. Lowman, the Awards Committee pointed to a career characterized by unusual productivity in research and writing, as well as major impact on training in consulting psychology and on consultation that has significantly impacted organizations served, including the Society of Consulting Psychology.  His impact on SCP through the Journal of Consulting Psychology has had enormous impact over the last few years. 

Amy Nieberding Owen, PhD will be awarded the 2014 Society of Consulting Psychology Service Award which is given to members who have made a sustained and significant contribution to the society throughout his or her career. Dr. Owen is being recognized for her work in formal leadership positions within the SCP, but also for earlier efforts, such as leadership of the Organizational Renewal Committee.  She was cited as epitomizing “servant leadership” through great generosity of spirit, as well as her mentoring and developing new leadership within the Society.

The Society will recognize all awardees at its annual awards ceremony held at the Midwinter Consulting Psychology Conference in San Antonio, in February. A special awards ceremony is scheduled for the close of the conference at 4:45 pm, on Saturday, February 8th.
