We are pleased to introduce our May 2022 National Register Member Spotlight, John C. Norcross, PhD, ABPP.

“During my many years with the National Register, I’ve been proud of our efforts to streamline licensure and credentialing for psychologists and to provide high-quality, practitioner-focused content. However, I am most proud of our providing direct financial assistance to doctoral students through our Internship Travel Scholarships. Awarding $60,000 in stipends this year is an outstanding achievement and shows a true commitment to the future of the profession. I have happily supported this campaign and encourage colleagues to do the same and donate.”

An internationally recognized authority on psychotherapy, John C. Norcross, PhD, ABPP, is Distinguished Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Scranton and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
