    Our mental health and medical team will be part of a select group of academic/clinical professionals that are building capacity within Liberia, which will ensure the sustainability of their physical and mental health care system. Our efforts are timely as Liberia is one of the African countries that is dealing with the Ebola outbreak, as this has exposed the gaps in the current health care system. The ISE is leading the mental health assessment phase of the project, and we are using this to inform development of a global framework for population mental health.

    Come enjoy a cocktail, art from nationally recognized and local artists, music and great company. There will be a silent auction, a live auction, and raffle to benefit our work in Liberia. Tickets cost $50 and can be purchased online. To purchase ticekts or donate, visit http://chiglobalhealth.com/gala/.

    Proceeds support Liberia’s medical & psychological care.

    Dr. Dreikurs Ferguson earned her Ph.D. from Northwestern University. She is a professor at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and a Visiting Scholar at University of California Berkeley. Dr. Dreikurs Ferguson wrote two motivation textbooks. The latest is a 2000
    book called Motivation and published by Oxford University Press. She wrote a book Discipline Without Tears (Dreikurs, Cassel, & Ferguson), Wiley, 2004, and Adlerian Theory, published by the Adler School (latest date is 2014). Dr. Dreikurs Ferguson also has published articles in motivation, cognition, culture, and Adlerian Psychology.

    She is a Life Member of AAAS, a Fellow of APA, a Founding Fellow of APS, a member of the Psychonomic Society and of Sigma Xi. Finally Dr. Dreikurs Ferguson is Chair of ICASSI (the International Committee of Adlerian Summer Schools and Institutes) and Honorary President of IAIP (International Association of Individual Psychology).
