From “The DGPP Award 2019” article in APS InPsych, 42 (3), 2020, June/July issue:
Andrew has been an APS member since 1998. Andrew has spent the majority of his career insecure about his capabilities and standing in Australian society, but continually driven by his passion to apply and disseminate the benefits of psychology widely.
Like many DGPP members, Andrew’s broad range of qualifications and experiences across many disciplines allowed him to make significant contributions to the education of psychology in secondary schools, positive sexuality community education, mentoring and leadership development. He works promoting careers in psychology and the provision of counselling and broader promotion of psychoeducation within university and broader populations.
In his role in the DGPP Forum (2015–19), Andrew actively increased transparency of the APS to members to increase member engagement in APS decision-making. Through more active APS involvement, Andrew is confident of his ability to contribute richly to his profession and beyond.
