I'm happy to have the opportunity to write a few words about a wonderful psychologist, Beverly Greene, whose photographs appear on this web site.
Dr. Greene, a practicing clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at St. John's University, is a Diplomate in Clinical Psychology (ABPP), and a fellow of American Psychological Association divisions 9,12, 29, 35, 42, 44, & 45; the Academy of Clinical Psychology; and the American Orthopsychiatric Association.
Bev has received countless honors in recognition of her mentoring, leadership, research, teaching, publications, and outstanding contributions to diverse branches of psychology. To name just a few: the APA Award for Distinguished Senior Career Contributions to Psychology in the Public Interest, the Distinguished Humanitarian Award from the American Association of Applied & Preventive Psychology, the Stanley Sue Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Diversity in Clinical Psychology, the Helms Award for Scholarship and Mentoring, the Florence Halpern Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Clinical Psychology, the Carolyn Wood Sherif Award, Distinguished Scientific Contributions to LGB Psychology Award, and the APA Committee on Women in Psychology’s Distinguished Leadership Award citing her "profound and far reaching contributions to psychological theory and practice relating to women, giving voice to the invisible and the unheard."
Bev is a caring and decent person, someone I feel the field and the public are so fortunate to have working on their behalf. It is not just her work but who she is as a person. She justifies the deep trust that others place in her, inspires by her example and generous spirit.
I've benefited in many ways from her wisdom and friendship. Friends, students, and colleagues tell me stories in which Bev's understanding, acceptance, and creative action had a validating, healing, or liberating effect on their lives.
