A prolific writer and active member of his profession, Dr. Ladany authored five books and numerous book chapters and articles in the area of providing professional supervision and training to mental-health professionals.  His membership in various professional organizations and hundreds of presentations also demonstrate his energy and commitment to advancing scholarship in his field.

With experience as a teacher, scholar, and administrator, Dr. Ladany will be a welcome addition to the School of Education and Counseling Psychology as the school builds and strengthens its programs in the years to come.

Let me take this opportunity to thank search committee members Terry Shoup (Chair), Lisa Goldstein, Pedro Hernandez-Ramos, Cynthia Mertens, Barbara Molony, Lucila Ramos-Sanchez, Paul Soukup, S.J., and Minh Virasak. Their hard work and commitment to the vision of the school helped ensure a successful conclusion to the search process.
