Counseling Today, an American Counseling Association (ACA) publication, recently featured two Warner faculty members in its May 2007 issue.

Kathryn Douthit, assistant professor in counseling and human development, recently published an article, “Averting Dementia of the Alzheimer’s Type in Women: Can Counselors Help?,” that was featured in the ACA Journal Spotlight as a ‘must-read’ piece. Her article talks about the role mental health counselors can play in assisting women throughout their lifespan to help reduce several risk factors for dementia of the Alzheimer’s type (DAT).

Doug Guiffrida, assistant professor in counseling and human development, was highlighted as the recipient of the 2007 ACA’s Ralph Berdie Memorial Research Award. He received this national award for his research on advancing college retention theory and improving ways in which counselors and other student affairs professionals prepare and support minority college students.
