"As an active psychologist for almost 55 years, I have had the opportunity to participate both in education and practice areas. Psychology has been good to me and allowed me to be involved in policy-making and organizational activities. In my judgment, an ideal way to pay back the discipline for all that I have received is to contribute to the APF. I can think of no group that is more deserving than the APF-a group that serves the field of psychology in myriad ways every day and will continue to do so in the future."
