Brian Glaser received national award

Brian Glaser, a professor of counseling psychology in the College of Education, received a national award for his work in a counselor preparation program that allows UGA students to gain practical experience by working with local juvenile offenders.

Glaser received the Education Excellence Award from the International Association of Addictions and Offender Counseling, which annually recognizes one educator who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to the field of addictions/offender issues through teaching.

Glaser and his colleague, Georgia Calhoun, both faculty members in the counseling and human development services department, developed the Juvenile Counseling and Assessment Program and the Gaining Insight into Relationship for Lifelong Success program, which have incorporated student work with more than 2,000 juvenile offenders over the past decade.
