UNT professor wins award from Society of Clinical Psychology

From a UNT News Service press release

Richard Rogers

DENTON (UNT), Texas -- Richard Rogers, a professor of psychology, recently was awarded the Florence Halpern Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Clinical Psychology. The award, in its 50th year, was given by The Society of Clinical Psychology, Division 12, of the American Psychological Association.

The Florence Halpern Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions honors psychologists who have made distinguished theoretical or empirical advances in psychology leading to the understanding of important practical problems.

Rogers, who began his career at UNT in 1991 as an associate professor of psychology, was director of clinical training at UNT from 1992 to 1996. In 1993, he was promoted to professor and awarded tenure.

As a prolific writer with more than 140 refereed articles, Rogers has published six books focusing on clinical and forensic practice, and three psychological measures for the evaluation of malingering (feigning mental illness), insanity and competency to stand trial. He is currently the principal investigator for a National Science Foundation grant for evaluating Miranda warnings and waivers.

After learning he was selected for the Florence Halpern Award, Rogers said, "I was very pleased to receive this award from the Society of Clinical Psychology. It is gratifying after decades of research and scholarship to receive such recognition from my colleagues."

Based in Washington, D.C., the American Psychological Association is a scientific and professional organization that represents psychology in the United States. With 150,000 members, APA is the largest association of psychologists worldwide.

The Society of Clinical Psychology consists of more than 4,000 doctoral-level psychologists who are active in practice, research, teaching, administration and/or study in the field of clinical psychology.
