Anneliese Singh, a faculty member in the College of Education, has received a citation from the president of the American Psychological Association (APA) for helping develop psychological practice guidelines with transgender clients.

APA Presidential Citations are typically given to psychologists at the end of their careers; however, Singh was recognized as an early career psychologist for her international expertise with transgender and gender non-conforming youth.

Singh, an associate professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Development Services, is co-author of the proposed Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Transgender and Gender Non-conforming Clients.

"Dr. Singh is an early career psychologist committed to social change and advocacy for the needs of marginalized youth," said Nadine Kaslow, APA President and professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Emory University. "She involves her students as community partners with grassroots organizations and schools."

Singh received the citation on Feb. 22 at the American Psychological Association meeting of their Executive Council in Washington D.C.
