Frances Berry-Worcester and Megan Phillips Receive Gene Pekarik Memorial Award

The Antioch University New England Clinical Psychology Faculty is pleased to announce that Frances Berry-Worcester and Megan Phillips are the co-recipients of the seventh Gene Pekarik Memorial Award for Research on Psychological Practice. Frances conducted a multicultural competence needs assessment among rural New England practitioners, while Megan explored the applicability of the therapy alliance rupture and repair process and measurement system to brief therapy training cases within the AUNE Psychological Services Center. We can only imagine that their innovative research in naturalistic settings would have made Dr. Pekarik quite proud.

As a token of our esteem, this award carries an honorarium of $250. Frances and Megan have been invited to present the research that earned them this award at a Department Colloquium next year—stay tuned. Finally, both of their names will be added to a plaque posted in the Department, honoring recipients of this award.
