Christy Denckla, M.A


This year at Adelphi University’s Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies was extremely eventful and exciting for Christy Denckla, who recently completed her third year. She was the recipient of the George Stricker Research Fellowship, which is awarded to one third year student every spring semester for excellence in research productivity. She was awarded $18,000, which was presented to her at the gala honoring Pat Ross in April. Additionally, she was elected president of the Society for Personality Assessment Graduate Student Association (SPAGS) in March and will serve a two-year term.

As chair of the Student Action Committee (SAC), Ms. Denckla has been an excellent advocate for the doctoral students and has launched numerous advancements in the Derner community. Along with serving as class representative, teaching fellow for the undergraduate psychology department and psychology extern at the Suicide Prevention Program/Dialectical Behavioral Therapy at the Manhattan VA, Ms. Denckla has been working on several articles and presentations in the areas of bereavement, personality and aging. She will be presenting two posters at the APA national convention in August.
