MEMBER SPOTLIGHT:    Bruce Wampold, PhD

Dr. Bruce Wampold has dedicated the past 30 years of his career as a psychologist to investigating important questions related to the provision of psychotherapeutic services. Through his relentless pursuit of understanding counseling and psychotherapeutic processes, he has amassed a sizable contribution of over 100 books, chapters and articles. Dr. Wampold’s contributions have focused on understanding counseling and psychotherapy from empirical, historical and anthropological perspectives. His book The Great Psychotherapy Debate: Models, methods, and findings (2001), presents a contextual model for understanding counseling and psychotherapy as supported by a body of empirical evidence. His article “Qualities and Actions of Effective Psychotherapists” (2011, APA) is an overview of the mechanisms and processes involved in efficacious use of psychotherapy as a means of treatment. Dr. Wampold’s honest and thorough considerations of psychotherapeutic practices and processes have served in advancing the cause of psychologically-based treatments and services in the age of “best practice” and “evidence-based” practices. 

Currently the Patricia L. Wolleat Professor of Counseling Psychology and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, Dr. Wampold also serves as the Director of the Research Institute at Modum Bad Psychiatric Center in Vikersund, Norway. His position at UW Madison has allowed him to remain active in both teaching and clinical supervisory roles, where he oversees masters and doctoral level counseling psychology students as student interns. Dr. Wampold is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (Divisions 12,17,29,45) and a Diplomat in Counseling Psychology of the American Board of Professional Psychology. In 2007, he was honored with the Distinguished Professional Contributions to Applied Research Award from APA.

When he's not busy in his numerous roles as a psychologist, you may find him having fun sailing his boat as an active member of the Mendota Yacht Club Association.
