Early Career Professionals Council

The mission of the Early Career Professionals Council (ECPC) is to promote and enhance the involvement of early career psychologists  by providing a defined voice and presence within SfHP.

The Early Career Professionals Council (ECPC) is comprised of Early Career Psychologists: anyone who has received their terminal degree, and is within 10 years of having received their terminal degree.

We accomplish our mission by promoting professional development, advocating for the needs and interests of early career psychologists, and participating in the Society’s Councils and Committees.

We encourage you to meet your colleagues and participate by joining our listserv. If you are interested in becoming involved as a council member, please contact the ECPC Chair. Elizabeth Seng, PhD, Chair, Yeshiva University elizabeth.seng@einstein.yu.edu.
