2018 APA Convention Accolades for Mark C. Russell

Last month, the documentary Thank You For Your Service, featuring Dr. Mark C. Russell, Core Faculty in our PsyD in Clinical Psychology program, and Establishing Director of our Institute of War Stress Injury, Recovery, and Social Justice, won the American Psychological Association’s 2018 Film Festival Award for Best Feature Film.

The APA’s film festival directory summary of the film is as follows: “This film expands awareness of war trauma through the stories of four Iraq War veterans. As they navigate reintegration following active duty military service, the film explores the path each service member has chosen to regain health and wellness. Their stories are shared within the context of the military system, where current limitations to mental health services are detailed from the perspective of providers and military and government leaders.”

In addition, at this same convention, Dr. Russell also won the APA Division 56 for Trauma Psychology’s 2018 award for “Outstanding Service to the Field of Trauma Psychology.”

The APA Division 56 describes this award in the following way on its website: “This award recognizes distinguished contributions to psychological practice. It may be given for the development of a highly effective intervention, for contributions to practice theory, or for a sustained body of work in the field of trauma psychology practice.”
