Summary of Instruction: (1966-1996)

I taught nearly a hundred different content courses over my career. Other than the specialized courses in the Student Personnel in Higer Education Program, I have taught all but a half dozen courses in the department of Counseling and Human Development Services at the University of Georgia. These courses have ranged from clinical supervision and psychotherapy to research design and assessment courses. They have included courses in rehabilitation counseling, counseling, and counseling and clinical psychology. On the average, I have taught twelve courses per year during my thirty years as a university professor. During my nearly twenty years at the University of Georgia, I frequently taught four courses a quarter while publishing and being the department head of a multifaceted counseling department. My instruction activities have always been rated high by students and mostly I am viewed as being student oriented by them. Most of my career, I have been readily assessible to students, a student advocate and empathic follower of their plights. Students have rallied to my aid at several universities when they believed that I was not being treated fairly. They diplocatically and professionally inquired to administrators about several unexplained administrative decisions. In recent years, I have develped an international reputation as a facilitator of learning in educational programs in Eastern and Western Europe. I have received honorary positions with these programs as "Scientific Director" of three different international programs.

Summary of Outreach: (1966-1996)

Throughout my career, I have integrated research activities with contributions to practitioners and community organizations. Early in my career, I worked with nearly every state rehabilitation agency in the nation investigating and implementing productive rehabilitation procedures. In the early and middle 1970's, I worked intimately with the Mental Health Centers in Iowa developing evaluation procedures and providing continuing education. While at the University of Georgia, I have worked with rehabilitation agency personnel providing in-service training for personnel both on-campus and at facility sites. My efforts at the University of Georgia in outreach have included international and local involvement. For example, I served as a consultant to the state sponsored Family Connection School program in Elberton, Ga. five years ago. I also worked with a local high school serving some of their "problem" students. I have also been extensively involved with international training programs as a lecturer, facilitator and general consultant. I have over the past eight years traveled to Europe more than thirty five times for the purpose of working with training programs. In 1987, I founded and continue to coordinate an annual international workshop for the professional development and personal empowerment of academicions, practioners, educators, administrators and others which has achieved international recognition as a unique workshop which operates on democratic principles.
