Bridget O. Hannahan, PhD October 27, 2010 — Congratulations to American Psychological Association Practice Organization (APAPO) member Bridget O. Hannahan, PhD, who won an Apple iPad in the first of three Psychologist Locator participant drawings.

Dr. Hannahan is a clinical psychologist consulting in Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics at the University of South Alabama. She specializes in early developmental and intellectual assessments, with a subspecialty in autism spectrum disorders.

“I love the idea that someone can use the Psychologist Locator to look for a psychologist with my specific areas of expertise,” said Dr. Hannahan. 

According to Dr. Hannahan, it was very easy to create her listing and to update it later. “I think the Psychologist Locator can be a great benefit for practitioners, patients, and professionals needing to make referrals,” she commented. 

As a consultant in pediatric specialty clinics, Dr. Hannahan does not have her own office. So she plans to sync her iPad with her home computer to create a portable office. “I am excited to see how I can use the iPad for my research and volunteer work,” she said.

The Psychologist Locator is a benefit of your Practice Assessment (PA) that supports the work of the APA Practice Organization. All current PA payers can create and maintain a free listing in the Locator, which is designed to help consumers find quality psychological services, increase public understanding of professional psychology, and enhance visibility for the profession.     

The APA Practice Organization is awarding one iPad in each of three drawings to psychologists who participate in the Psychologist Locator. In addition to the September drawing in which Dr. Hannahan was awarded an  iPad, two additional drawings remain: One at the end of October and another at the end of November. All Psychologist Locator participants listed between January 1, 2010, and the time of the drawing will be automatically entered and have a chance to win an iPad.
