Lindsay Phillips, PsyD, receives National Award for Excellence


The National Register of Health Service Psychologists (National Register) Board of Directors announced today the presentation of the Judy E. Hall Early Career Psychologist award to Lindsay Phillips, PsyD, ABPP of Jeffersonville, PA.

The award is named for the National Register’s current Executive Officer, Judy E. Hall, PhD, and recognizes excellence in a nationally credentialed psychologist with less than ten years of postdoctoral experience.

According to Dr. Hall, “The National Register Board of Directors was impressed with Dr. Phillips’ desire to help the very vulnerable segment of the population who is acclimating to life after spending time incarcerated. The Board was delighted with her plans to make her research ‘Coping with reentry: Mixed methods analysis of successful transitions from prison to society,’ general information and other resources easily accessible to not only psychology professionals but to the people who would most benefit from it.”

Upon receipt of the award, Dr. Phillips wrote, “I am honored to be one of the 2012 recipients of the Judy E. Hall, Ph.D., Early Career Psychologist Award. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Dr. Hall and to everyone at the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology. I plan to use the award funds to create a service learning project for my students that works toward increasing visibility of psychological and other services to individuals who are reentering society following a prison sentence.”

Dr. Phillips received her PsyD in clinical psychology in 2008 from the Chestnut Hill College. Her dissertation research focused on the imprisoned and jailed population and reentry into general society. She completed her predoctoral internship at the Veterans Affairs in Coatesville, PA. She is been a member of the psychology faculty at Albright College (Accelerated Degree Programs), and maintains private practice in Pennsylvania.

Dr. Phillips has been credentialed by the National Register since 2011.
