Panel Discussion for PsyD Students: Training and Careers in New Hampshire

A panel discussion presented by the New Hampshire Psychological Association (NHPA) on Monday, March 24, will address possible practice options in New Hampshire after licensure. The discussion will take place on Monday, March 24, at 11:45 a.m. in the Dance Studio.

The focus of the discussion will be helping students become more aware of the options available for practice in their areas of interest within New Hampshire. Topics such as working with children and adolescents, inpatient settings, neuropsychology, the importance of assessments, and things to consider when thinking about private practice will be covered.  Students will also learn about how becoming a student member or a full member of NHPA may help them to access areas of interest and gain experience working in public service.

Elizabeth Howell Woodbury, PsyD ’03, will moderate the panel.  She is employed by the State of New Hampshire as the psychological services liaison for Anna Philbrook Center, Children’s Unit. She also has successfully transitioned from working for a large group practice to working in her independent private practice. She has supervised Dartmouth neuropsychological students and students from AUNE at New Hampshire Hospital for clinical rotations and special assessment practica. She is also a board member (at large) of NHPA and a member of its legislative committee.

Dr. Woodbury has presented to the Family Law Division of the New Hampshire Bar Association and routinely provides consultation to local attorneys and guardians ad litem about the effective use of psychology services and the ethical dilemmas involved in cases involving child custody, or children’s issues.

Panel members TBA. Plan to bring your lunch and your questions!
