Dispatch 10: Dr. Theopia Jackson, Honoree and Next President of Association of Black Psychology (2019)


We are pleased to announce that Saybrook University Department Chair of Clinical Psychology, Dr. Theopia Jackson, was recently recognized by the Association of Black Psychology (ABPsi). In recognition of her dedication and steadfast commitment to ABPsi, Theopia was honored with the 2017 ABPsi Service Award at the 49th Association of Black Psychology (ABPsi), Inc. convention that was held in Houston, Texas in July.


Theopia was particularly honored to receive this honor as her children (Jhia and Jaylen) were in attendance as were several Saybrook students.

In addition, Theopia was elected 2017-2019 President Elect for ABPsi, assuming the presidency in 2019. As some may know, Saybook has been a proud sponsor of ABPsi and we look forward to continuing our support of this fine organization.

As we look toward 2018, the 2018 ABPsi National Convention will be in Oakland which offers us another excellent opportunity to partner with this wonderful organization.
