Graduate and faculty published in Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology
Graduate and faculty published in Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology

Arizona School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University 2015 graduate Amy White (Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology) and faculty members Dr. Gregory Schrader and Dr. Jared Chamberlain, published an article titled “Perceptions of law enforcement officers in seeking mental health treatment in a right-to-work state” in the Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology, (31)2, 141-154

The abstract of the article states:

“The high stress environment of law enforcement places officers at risk for a variety of mental and physical health problems; however, officers are reluctant to seek out treatment. The purpose of this study was to identify which factors associated with law enforcement officers had predictive value in the level of stigma perceived in seeking mental health treatment by currently employed, certified peace officers in Arizona. The factors included sex, age, race/ethnicity, years employed as an officer, size of the department, current rank/position within the department, the type of government operating the agency, and payment of union dues. The study included 454 participants. Participation included the completion of demographic data, the Self-Stigma of Seeking Psychological Help (SSOSH), and the Perceptions of Stigmatization by Others for Seeking Help (PSOSH). Using standard multiple regression, the most significant finding was the relationship between the size of the department and levels of stigma (p =.014); such that, the size was inversely related to the levels of perceived stigma. As the agency size increased, the perceptions of stigma decreased. Such a finding has several implications for law enforcement agencies related to preparedness and training.”

Argosy University honored in Military Advanced Education & Transition's 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities
Argosy University honored in Military Advanced Education & Transition's 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities

ORANGE, CALIF. (Jan. 12, 2017) – Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) has awarded Argosy University, with 28 campus locations in 13 states and online, with the designation of a Top School in its 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education.

 

Now in its tenth year of publishing the Guide, MAE&T evaluated institutions on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services.

 

“MAE&T’s Guide to Colleges and Universities provides the foundational information a prospective student would use in framing his or her educational needs,” said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition’s editor-in-chief.

 

Students have access to the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information.

 

“There are many different variables by which you could evaluate an institution, but we focus on the best practices that have been asserted by various higher education groups and reinforced by veteran groups. These best practices assure students that they have a high chance of success and support at their school of choice,” said Fodel. “That’s why we consider our survey to be the most detailed and informative in the industry.”
