Some developments from our faculty:
- Jeff Wherry’s Children’s Justice Act grant application, “Training in Evidence-Based Assessment of Abused Youth,” has been approved for funding, it was just announced. Dr. Wherry is Principal Investigator and will serve as the primary trainer in this online training and supervision project. Over 200 licensed professionals across the entire state of Texas will receive training and supervision using a variety of online technologies. This training in assessment of abused children will result in better treatment for this population in Texas.
- Alan Reifman was quoted in this USA Today article about parents’ relationships’ with their emerging-adult (age 18-29) children.
- Du Feng, who spent 17 years with us on the HDFS faculty, announced that she will be moving to the School of Nursing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. With her background in quantitative psychology, Du taught many of our statistics courses and applied advanced analytic techniques to research topics such as intergenerational processes in families and (in collaboration with the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center) evaluation of childhood obesity-prevention programs. We will miss her and we wish her the best.
