The Chicago School Of Professional Psychology Receives California Psychological Association's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award

LOS ANGELES, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Chicago School of Professional Psychology's (TCSPP) Los Angeles Campus, recently received a California Psychological Association's (CPA) 2013 Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award. A nonprofit graduate school devoted exclusively to psychology and related behavioral health sciences, the Los Angeles Campus, including the Westwood and Irvine branches, were recognized for superior efforts in the award category of employee involvement. Michele Nealon-Woods, Psy.D., national president of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, accepted the award at the California Psychological Association's Annual Convention.


Through an employee questionnaire designed to gauge the opinions and needs of faculty and staff, employees gave TCSPP high marks in the following areas: paid time off to engage in volunteer activities, the number of pro bono hours contributed to the community in 2012-2013, contribution to employees' growth and development, work-life balance, employee recognition and the flow of communication within the organization. Each applicant was judged on criteria including: health and safety; employee growth and development; work-life balance; employee recognition and employee involvement. The Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award is supported by the American Psychological Association.

"Maintaining a psychologically healthy workplace at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is vital to organizational performance and one of the best ways we reduce employee turnover, and keep valuable employees strong, happy and productive," stated Dr. Nealon-Woods. "We thank the CPA for recognizing our success in creating a comprehensive set of programs and policies that motivate employee involvement and, ultimately, benefit their health and prosperity."

"In this time of high job stress and increasing demands on employees, these exemplary workplaces have made it a priority to create environments that are sensitive to the health and well-being of their workers," says Mark Kamena, Ph.D, President of the California Psychological Association. "By rewarding these organizations for their efforts, we hope others will take notice and implement similar programs in their workplaces."

According to a poll by the American Psychological Association, two-thirds of both men and women say work has a significant impact on their stress level, and one in four has missed work because of stress.
