Athens, Ga. – University of Georgia Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus and interim director of the Educational Policy and Evaluation Center Andy Horne has been named a Fellow of the American Psychological Association’s Division of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology.
It is the sixth time during his 19 year career at UGA that Horne has been named an APA Fellow. He had previously been named Fellow of the APA at-large and in the divisions of Counseling Psychology, Family Psychology, Group Psychology and Psychotherapy, and Psychology of Men and Masculinity.
Horne is just one of four faculty members in UGA’s department of counseling and human development services who have been named APA fellows.
Brian Glaser, a professor of counseling psychology and Edward Delgado-Romero, an associate professor of counseling psychology, were nominated for the honors last fall and were inducted along with Horne at the 115th annual conference of the APA last month.
Glaser was named a Fellow of the Society of Counseling Psychology and Delgado-Romero was named a Fellow of the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues.
Linda Campbell, a professor of counseling psychology and director of UGA’s Center for Counseling and Personal Evaluation, was named an APA Fellow in 2002.
The department’s graduate programs, currently ranked ninth in the nation in the annual U.S. News & World Report survey, have consistently been among the top 10 counseling programs in the nation since the magazine began their rankings more than a decade ago.
Horne and his UGA colleague, Pamela Orpinas, of the UGA College of Public Health, continue to garner national attention for their research on bullying prevention. The pair presents training workshops for psychologists on treating persistent bullies, and in 2006, the APA published their book titled, Bullying Prevention: Creating a Positive School Climate and Developing Social Competence.
Horne and Orpinas, a professor in the department of health promotion and behavior, have recently completed editing a new book titled, Handbook of Prevention, which will be published by the APA in 2008. The book summarizes the current state of research and practice in the area of prevention in psychology. They have worked on the book for three years with two other colleagues.
