Where did the name “Progress Notes” come from?

Ian Gutierrez Ian Gutierrez, PhD, a clinical psychologist and the 2016–2017 chair of the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS), is the creative mind behind the name of our podcast. The idea came to him when, after just signing off on a progress note, he received the email announcing the podcast-naming contest. “All practicing psychologists write progress notes, so ‘progress notes’ are familiar to the practice community,” he said. The name of the podcast is also aspirational. “In promoting the mutual professional interests of practicing psychologists at a national level, APA facilitates progress for our professional practice by providing resources to its members and through its advocacy on Capitol Hill,” said Gutierrez. “So, the new podcast will take note of the progress that we are making as a profession.”
