The Elina Manghi Memorial
The 2013 Elina Manghi Memorial Lecture and Scholarship Reception
On October 3, 2013, over 60 guests attended the 2013 Elina Manghi Memorial Lecture and Scholarship Reception at the Adler School’s Chicago campus.
The program included welcome remarks from Adler School President Raymond E. Crossmam, Ph.D., and Dennis McGuire, Elina’s husband, who shared some touching memories of his late wife before presenting Katie Rhodes as the 2013 Scholarship recipient.
Katie enrolled in the Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) program in the fall of 2010. Her strong history of helping underserved populations, particularly the adolescent Latina community, aligns with the Adler School mission to graduate socially responsible practitioners and advance social justice. Katie is concerned about gender value discrepancies and inequality in the workplace, themes she is exploring in her dissertation, “Gendered Career Role Expectations of High School Females”.
The keynote speaker was Mary Fristad, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry at The Ohio State University and author of Raising a Moody Child. Dr. Fristad’s presentation, “Psychoeducational Psychotherapy: A Starting Point Model for Child/Family Therapy” was followed by a brief reception.
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 from diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds 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 from 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.
