Ask the Psychologist
We asked APA member psychologists who serve as ACT Coordinators to provide information about child development and parenting skills.
This time we asked Dr. Angie Sanders to answer two questions about parenting and how parenting
styles impact children.
Dr. Sanders is an Implementation Manager for Credible Behavioral Health (based in Bethesda, Maryland), a leading innovator in web and mobile solutions for behavioral health organizations. She assists care providers in configuring the Credible software to meet their needs and trains behavioral health staff in the implementation and use of the software. Dr. Sanders is also an Administrative and Program Surveyor for the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Prior to joining Credible, Dr. Sanders provided administrative leadership to a community mental health agency in eastern Arkansas, where she was an ACT Coordinator.
