Lawrence Martin Brammer (1922–2018)
This article memorializes Lawrence Martin Brammer (1922–2018). Brammer was the president of Division 17 (Counseling Psychology) of the American Psychological Association (APA) from 1986 to 1987 and Fellow of the Society for Counseling Psychology. Over his long career, he received many awards and made major contributions to the field, including extensive international work, a breakthrough theories text with Everett Shostrom, and two terms of service on the APA Council of Representatives. His presidency of Division 17 was marked by a crucial call to take the lead in “professional statesmanship,” raising the identity of counseling psychology as a profession. He urged the reduction of turf struggles, stressing collaboration between the fields of counseling, clinical, school, and industrial–organizational psychology, without sacrificing their unique autonomies.
