Who Is Dr. Nicholas Cummings?

Former APA President, Nicholas A. Cummings, PhD, is a member of the legendary "Dirty Dozen," a group of practitioners that fought for professionalism, licensure and third-party reimbursement. He implemented the first comprehensive psychotherapy insurance and pushed for the freedom of choice legislation that led to third party reimbursement of psychologists. Cummings founded the National Council of Schools of Professional Psychology and the National Academies of Practice-- two institutions that shaped the professional school movement and the psychologist as behavioral primary-care physician.

Dr. Cummings started the first practitioner-managed behavioral health delivery system in the United States. American Biodyne was innovative, successful, and ahead of its time. He is recognized as the foremost expert on the delivery of mental health care. Nick Cummings is a life long advocate for professional psychology and practice

Dr. Cummings is president of the Foundation for Behavioral Health, and chair of the boards of The Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Foundation and the University Alliance for Behavioral Care Inc. Dr. Cummings was born in Salinas, California and earned his PhD in clinical psychology from Adelphi University. Presently, Dr. Cummings is on the Board of Directors of The National Alliance of Professional Psychology Providers.


E sada zasto sam prvo dao intervju pa onda njegovu biografiju. Ako ukucate njegovo ime u google naicicete na podatke o njemu kao coveku koji je najzasluzniji zasto se 1973 godine homoseksualizam ukida kao bolest od strane APA (Americke psihijatrijske asocijacije). Slusajuci njegov intervju mozete doci do zakljucka da covek ne pripada konzervativcima ni tradicionalistima, vec kako sam kaze pripada liberalima.U intervju iznosi na koji nacin je ukinuta odluka iz 1973 godine, ali govori i o tome sta se danas desava u APA i drugim slicnim organizacijama koji trpe ogroman uticaj od strane raznih homoseksualnih pokreta, a narocito politicara. Govori o tome kako psihijatrija i psihologija dozivljavaju krizu jer su postali opasan instrument u rukama mocnika. Najbolje da sami cujete. Verujte mi ni malo nije dosadno.

Takodje, ko ima priliku da nabavi knjigu preporucujem mu da je procita.

Is Psychology Losing Its Way?
By Dr. Warren Throckmorton
December 21, 2005

A recent book edited by eminent psychologists Rogers Wright and Nicholas Cummings delivers a stunning indictment of the mental health professions. Destructive Trends in Mental Health: The Well-Intentioned Path to Harm documents and critiques the ascent of social activism over open-minded scientific inquiry and quality mental health care in the current mental health establishment. This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about mental health care in this country.

The book casts a critical eye on muchof the social activism of the psychological and psychiatric professional associations over the past thirty years. However, Drs. Wright and Cummings cannot be dismissed as disgruntled conservatives. Their deeds validate their claim to be “lifelong liberal activists.” For instance, while president of the American Psychological Association, Dr. Cummings supported the development of the first task force championing the mental health needs of gays, lesbians and bisexuals.

In addition tobeingpersonally involved in social activism, the authors have been keen and pragmatic observers of the mental health professions over the past 40 years. My own contact with Nick Cummings made a lasting impact on me. I first met Dr. Cummingsin 1986 when American Biodyne, the first real managed behavioral health care company in America, came to Ohio as a manager of the state employee behavioral health care program. I just started my counseling private practice in Portsmouth, Ohio, and wanted to get on board the managed care train. Biodyne did something very novel for a managed care company: all therapists in the preferred network were required to be trained by the company leaders, including the president and founder, Nick Cummings. In all my years of education, both in school and post-grad, I have never listened to a better trainer than Nick Cummings. He believed mental health therapy could be a powerful influence in a person's life but it was never to be used to gratify the therapist or to promote a political agenda. That same theme permeates this book. Drs. Cummings and Wright believe that modern psychology has been overthrown by forces of social activism and as a consequence faces irrelevance.

As one example, Cummings and Wright demonstrate how political support for gay activism has led to stifling of client self-determination. Consider this quote from the book regarding sexual identity therapy:

"In the current climate, it is inevitable that conflict arises among the various subgroups in the marketplace. For example, gay groups within the APA [American Psychological Association] have repeatedly tried to persuade the association to adopt ethical standards that prohibit therapists from offering psychotherapeutic services designed to ameliorate "gayness" on the basis that such efforts are unsuccessful and harmful to the consumer. Psychologists who do not agree are termed homophobic. Such efforts are especially troubling because they abrogate the patient's right tochoose the therapistand determine therapeutic goals. They also deny the reality of data demonstrating that psychotherapy can be effective in changing sexual preferences in patients who have a desire to do so." (From the introduction, page xxx).

Sexual identity therapy is not the only political hot potato tackled by theauthors. They demonstrate how politically correct posturing can serve to obscure research findings. For instance, co-editor Wright cites research by Cummings suggesting that positive male figures in the lives of children are significantly related to a decrease in the number of children requiring medication for behavior problems. However, he laments that such research results are frequently stifled or even dismissed because they offend feminist sensibilities.

Drs. Wright and Cummings express concern over the professional consequences of psychology’s misadventures into social activism. They paint a picture of psychologists being unable to support themselves as psychologists because the profession has become enamored with producing position statements about social change. Mental health care in America is adequate but barely so. Any practicing counselorknows how difficult it is to find quality services anywhere outside of the metropolitan areas of this country. Cummings and Wright predict that psychology’s preoccupation with social activism threatens to make it irrelevant as a force for quality and affordable health care for all people.

So how is the current leadership of the APA reacting to the critique of Cummings and Wright? Not well. It appears the former APA luminaries are getting a cold shoulder from the current leadership. At a recent meeting of National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, Dr. Wright noted that the APA adopted a "strategic decision not to respond" to their book to avoid giving it undue attention. Furthermore, the APA initially prohibited its member-publications from even reviewing the book. Observed Dr. Wright: "So much for diversity and open-mindedness."

In my opinion, the current APA leadership will ignore these warnings at their peril. When it comes to trends in mental health care, Nick Cummings has rarely been wrong in his predictions. I don't think he is wrong this time.
