UW-Madison's Thompson selected as fellow of APA’s Society of Counseling Psychology

August 22, 2019

UW–Madison’s Mindi Thompson was recently accepted as a fellow of the American Psychological Association’s Society of Counseling Psychology.

Mindi Thompson
Thompson is an associate professor with the School of Education’s Department of Counseling Psychology and is a licensed and registered health service psychologist. Thompson also directs the Work and Wellness Lab, which studies career development across the lifespan, how environmental factors impact experiences across life domains, and factors that promote wellness.

Thompson has published more than 30 peer reviewed journal articles and book chapters using qualitative and quantitative methods, and has co-authored a research design textbook titled, "Research Design in Counseling.” 

According to the Society of Counseling Psychology website, “Fellowship is an honor bestowed upon members who have made ‘unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology.’ Their contributions are viewed as having enriched or advanced Counseling Psychology well beyond the level that normally would be expected of a professional psychologist. Fellows are selected by peers on the basis of evidence of sustained superior performance that is recognizable at a national (rather than local or regional) level.”
