Serving the Graduate Psychology Community since 2003

A letter from the President

July 28, 2014

Dear ACEPT Community,


Just a few brief updates about the organization and our upcoming meeting, Friday Aug. 1 at 1:00 at the Water Tower Campus of Loyola University.


First of all, it is my pleasure to announce that Kelli Johnson, Ph.D., from Argosy University - Schaumburg, was elected President-Elect.  She will officially begin in that role at this meeting (our first of the year under our new bylaws) as current President-Elect Eunice Kim, Psy.D. becomes President.


Second, and this is important:  I  gave the incorrect physical address for the meeting location in my previous email.  We will actually be on the 13th Floor of Bean Hall, at 111 E. Pearson.  The address I gave previously is a general address for the Water Tower Campus, not for our specific building. 


Here is information on discounted parking nearby:


Finally, rather than having a speaker for the continuing education portion (2:00 hour) of our meeting, We will be discussing the attached article from The Counseling Psychologist on inadequate and harmful clinical supervision.  If you have time, we ask that you please read the article between now and the meeting-- We hope it will lead to a productive conversation.


Hope to see you August 1st!




Tim Mulligan, Ph.D.

Assistant Director for Training, Counseling Center

Adjunct Professor of Psychology 

Valparaiso University
