Gowensmith Leads ISL Trip to South Africa
In November of 2013, GSPP faculty member Dr. Neil Gowensmith led a group of DU students on an International Service Learning trip to South Africa. Students were engaged in field work including grant writing and trauma center assistance. Three GSPP students attended: Jenna Peyton, Amanda Bryant, and Lizz Coyle (who made this video).
Dr. Artur Poczwardowski, Associate Professor of Sport & Performance Psychology, received the Distinguished Teaching Award for 2013-14 at Convocation. This is the second time a GSPP faculty member has received this prestigious award in the past five years.
Each summer IDP students engage in an 8-week international internship, providing a rich opportunity to apply theory to practice in the global context. Sites are arranged by the program with non-governmental and governmental agencies whose missions focus on a variety of mental health and psychosocial issues relevant to the needs of communities affected by disaster and trauma.

GSPP faculty member Kim Gorgens presented a TedxDU Talk on the subject of protecting the brain against concussion. Dr. Gorgens teaches the Psychophysiology and Clinical Neuropsychology sequence at the doctoral level and several courses for the master's level programs.
