Donna Aucoin, PhD, MPNovember 18, 2010 — Congratulations to American Psychological Association Practice Organization (APAPO) member Donna Aucoin, PhD, MP, who won the second of three Apple iPads in the Psychologist Locator participant drawings.

A licensed psychologist in Louisiana with prescriptive privileges, Dr. Aucoin works with a specialized team of psychologists and other health care professionals at Aucoin & Associates Psychology Practice in Lafayette. Dr. Aucoin specializes in the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral and academic concerns.

“Because the Psychologist Locator is associated with the APA, I believe there is [good]  credibility and  a high level of comfort for potential clients” said Dr. Aucoin. She has received several new referrals through the Psychologist Locator. “It's a great way for potential clients to find psychologists and learn more about their areas of emphasis.”    

Most importantly, the registration process was simple. “Creating the listing was really easy — you're guided step-by-step throughout the process,” said Dr. Aucoin.

Dr. Aucoin expressed excitement about winning the iPad. “It will be nice to access my schedule and other resources without having to lug around a laptop computer,” she said.

The Psychologist Locator is a benefit of your Practice Assessment (PA), which 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, provide resources and information for the public, and enhance visibility for the profession.     

The APA Practice Organization is awarding one iPad in each of three drawings to psychologists who are listed in the Psychologist Locator. The first iPad was awarded to Bridget O. Hannahan, PhD in October. The final iPad drawing will be on November 30, 2010. All Psychologist Locator participants listed between January 1, 2010 and November 29, 2010 will be automatically entered and have a chance to win.
