DENTON – Dr. Susan Adams, associate professor of counseling and development at Texas Woman’s University, is the 2012 recipient of the Distinguished Service Award from the Association for Adult Development and Aging (AADA), a division of the American Counseling Association.

The AADA’s Distinguished Service Award recognizes outstanding service to the adult development division of the American Counseling Association and to the counseling profession in general.

“I truly love to use my counseling skills and life experiences to make positive contributions to society in a variety of different ways,” Dr. Adams said. “When I consider all those that do so much for our profession and the service contributions they make, I am humbled to be selected and honored for my work.”

In addition to her teaching and counseling duties at TWU, Dr. Adams is an internationally known speaker on adults dealing with grief and loss. She also is the immediate past president of the Texas Counseling Association (TCA) – the largest state counseling association in the U.S. – and was named the 2008 Counselor Educator of the Year by the Texas Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (TACES), a division of the TCA.

Dr. Adams will receive her Distinguished Service Award during an AADA breakfast held during the American Counseling Association’s convention in San Francisco March 24.
