The Elina Manghi Memorial
The 2014 Elina Manghi Memorial Lecture and Scholarship Reception
The 2014 Annual Elina Manghi Memorial Child and Adolescent Psychology Lecture will take place October 23, at 6 p.m. at the Adler School of Professional Psychology’s Chicago Campus, 17 N. Dearborn Street in Chicago. We are pleased to announce that distinguished researcher Sydney Hans, Ph.D., Samuel Deutsch Professor at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration, will speak as our 2014 Manghi Memorial Lecturer.
Dr. Hans will speak on the Chicago Doula Project. In 2000, she established the project for community doulas to work with expecting mothers and their families. Today, it is nationally recognized for its powerful impact supporting healthy families and preventing child maltreatment.
Dr. Hans is distinguished for her research on how biological and social factors interact and contribute to risk and resilience in human development. Meet Dr. Hans and join us as she discusses the Doula Project and its profound implications for strength-based intervention and policies that benefit infants, young children, and their families.
One Continuing Education credit will be available for this lecture. There is no cost to attend the lecture and reception, but we do ask that you register for the event.
The Elina Manghi Memorial
The Memorial was established at the Adler School of Professional Psychology to honor the memory of Elina Manghi, Ph.D., a cherished colleague, and a consummate child and adolescent psychologist. Dr. Manghi was an exemplary clinician, researcher and teacher, whose compassion and generosity deeply touched everyone with whom she worked. The Elina Manghi Memorial Child and Adolescent Psychology Lecture features a leading figure in the field of child and adolescent psychology, whose work exemplifies the qualities and principles Elina espoused and taught.
Child and Adolescent Psychology Diversity Scholarship
Established in 2012, the Elina Manghi Child and Adolescent Psychology Diversity Scholarship is designated for students entering the Child and Adolescent Psychology track within the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology program at the Adler School. The Diversity Scholarship honors Dr. Manghi’s commitment to working with underserved populations and intended to encourage students to pursue work in the field to which Dr. Manghi dedicated her life. The fund annually will provide a $1,000 scholarship to one student working with an under-represented ethnic group. The Manghi Memorial Child and Adolescent Psychology Diversity Scholarship was established through the generosity of David Katz, Ph.D., ABPP, Program Chair, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology Program, and Core Faculty member at the Adler School.
