Dr. Hanna Wins 2019 Humanistic Impact Award

University News | 03.12.19

Fred Hanna, Ph.D., received the 2019 Humanistic Impact Award, granted by the Association for Humanistic Counseling. Dr. Hanna, Director of the Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision program in Chicago, was recognized for his significant contributions to the counseling profession.

The Association for Humanistic Counseling fosters counseling practice, education, scholarship, advocacy and mentorship emerging from the Humanistic traditions. Humanistic psychology is a long-standing tradition of counseling and therapy that holds humanistic values, like compassion, kindness, empathy, understanding, and the dedication to helping others in mind, as part of the approach to helping people to change.

“Pretty much everything I have done has a humanistic bend to it,” said Dr. Hanna. “Alfred Adler was a humanist himself, so it aligns very closely [with our mission.] If a person is humanistic then they are also oriented around social justice and social responsible practices.”

Dr. Hanna said the award is “an acknowledge of everything I’ve been doing for more than 25 years. It’s a great honor. I’m very thankful.”

The Adler University community congratulates Dr. Hanna for his work and commitment in the field of mental health.
