Department of Psychology
It's a First
Dr. Katie Howell, associate professor of Psychology, is the first faculty member to receive two Early Career Development Awards from two separate divisions of the American Psychological Association (APA) in the same year.
She has received the Theodore Blau Early Career Award for professional contributions to clinical psychology and the Diane J. Willis Early Career Award for her work improving the well-being of children and families through policy and service.
Dr. Howell will be recognized for both awards at the APA convention in Chicago in August.
The African, Latino, Asian and Native American (ALANA) group created 25 care packages that were given to Memphis Union Mission and the city's homeless population. They also donated teddy bears to the Memphis Child Advocacy Center. (Click image below for larger image.)
