Athens, Ga. – For the second time in her career, University of Georgia counseling professor Linda Campbell has been named a Fellow of a division of the American Psychological Association.
Campbell, a faculty member in the College of Education’s department of counseling and human development services, has been named a Fellow of the APA’s Society of Counseling Psychology division. She was named a Fellow of the Psychotherapy division in 2002.
A licensed psychologist and former president of the APA’s Division of State and Provincial Psychological Association Affairs and the Division of Psychotherapy, Campbell directs the UGA Center for Counseling and Personal Evaluation and teaches graduate courses in counseling. She is also currently president of the Georgia State Board of Examiners of Psychologists, the unit which grants licenses to practice psychology in Georgia.
Fellow status is an honor bestowed upon APA members who have shown unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology. Their work also must have had a national impact on the field of psychology beyond a local, state or regional level.
Campbell was awarded the prestigious APA State Leadership Award for 2006, which is given to only one person each year across all state psychological associations with membership of 50,000 or more.
She has received the Distinguished Psychologist Award (2000) from the APA’s Division of Psychotherapy, and is a three-time winner of the President’s Award (2005, 2000 and 1999) recognizing contributions to the Georgia Psychological Association.
Campbell, who joined the UGA faculty in 1988, has co-authored five books, four book chapters, and numerous journal articles in her field.
