Edward Delgado-Romero, associate dean for faculty and staff services in UGA’s College of Education and a professor in the counseling and human development services department, recently received the 2018 NLPA Distinguished Professional Career Award from The National Latina/o Psychological Association, a national organization of mental health researchers and practitioners that works to advance psychological knowledge to benefit Latinas/os.
The award is given to a psychologist whose contributions have “advanced an agenda congruent with NLPA’s mission,” according to the organization’s website. Candidates are eligible after 15 years have passed since earning a doctoral degree. It was presented during the organization’s biennial conference.
Delgado-Romero’s research focuses on the development of Latina/o psychology and the connections made between ethnic minority psychology and other aspects of multicultural psychology.
