TWU’s Dr. Nutt to receive TPA ‘Psychologist of the Year’ Award


DENTON — Dr. Roberta Nutt, founder and director of the doctoral counseling psychology program at Texas Woman’s University, will be honored Friday, Nov. 17 as the Texas Psychological Association 2006 Psychologist of the Year. The award will be presented at the TPA Annual Convention in Dallas.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized for your work, especially when your work truly is a labor of love,” Dr. Nutt said.

The award recognizes Dr. Nutt for her exceptional accomplishments in teaching, research and service, as well as her leadership abilities.

“I have good people behind me,” Dr. Nutt said, citing her colleagues and students. “Both students and faculty work hard and are open to new ideas. That’s not only rewarding; it’s inspiring.”

Professor Nutt’s research, publications and presentations have focused on gender issues, feminist therapy, ethics and licensure and regulation. She is past president of the Society of Counseling Psychology of the American Psychological Association, and recently was elected the 2007 chair of the APA’s Commission for the Recognition of Specialties and Proficiencies in Professional Psychology. She holds diplomate status in family psychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology. She also serves on the Joint Designation Appeals Committee of the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards, which identifies and certifies psychology doctoral programs in the United States and Canada.
Teaching, serving as an administrator and maintaining a private practice can make for a hectic schedule, but Dr. Nutt sees it as a good combination.

“I like the variety in what I do,” she said. “I think practicing psychology brings a greater depth of understanding to the classroom and makes me a better teacher. It also keeps my therapy skills sharp. In turn, my practice allows me to make use of what I teach.”
