FACT 10th National Meeting
Tucson, Arizona
January 14, 2002

Logan Wright Advocacy Award

Dr. Bill King, First Recipient
January 14, 2002

Several years ago, FACT invited Dr. Logan Wright to be the main speaker at our National Meeting in Washington, DC.  Dr. Wright spoke about advocacy.  He was a past president of the American Psychological Association (APA) and a founder of the American Psychology Society, when many psychologists felt that APA was becoming too dominated by practitioners or clinicians.  He also founded the Northamerican Association of Master’s in Psychology (NAMP), recognizing that they were being treated as second-class citizens within APA.  NAMP is also a member of the Fair Access Coalition on Testing.  Logan semi-retired from the University of Oklahoma to his ranch, where he suffered a heart attack and died in December 1999.  Because of the outstanding advocacy and sage advice he gave to FACT, we at FACT have decided to name our first award in Logan Wright’s honor.

Because of his tireless, creative, and effective advocacy on behalf of fair access in Indiana, in the face of considerable opposition from organized psychology in his state, we awarded our first Logan Wright Advocacy Award to Dr. Bill King, on January 14, 2002.

Restricted Test List Repealed in Indiana
May 17, 2007 - Legislation providing the Indiana State Psychology Board’s authority to create a restricted test list (RTL) has been repealed. HB 1821 removes language originally included in the counselor licensure law which passed in 1997. While this language has been in statute for ten years, a RTL was never successfully adopted despite multiple attempts by the Indiana Psychology Board in the last ten years. Effective July 1, 2007, this new law removes the authority of the Indiana Board of Psychology to create a Restricted Test List (RTL).
