The Grace College Graduate School in Counseling and Interpersonal Relations has announced the appointment of Dr. Scott Edwards (pictured) to its faculty in the fall 2008. Edwards will be assistant professor and clinical coordinator in the department.
He earned his undergraduate degree in psychology from Anderson University, Anderson, Indiana, and completed a Master’s degree in Counseling and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Ball State University. After returning to Indiana from Minnesota, where he trained in Child Clinical Psychology and Pediatric Neuropsychology at the University of Minnesota Medical School, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at Associates in Mental Health in Muncie.
Dr. Edwards has taught as an adjunct at the community college level and been on the undergraduate faculty of Indiana University Kokomo and Taylor University.
He comes to Grace with nearly 20 years experience in the mental health field and has held posts in community mental health centers, church and university-based counseling clinics, hospitals, youth treatment centers, and private practice. He currently serves children and families through his private practice, Lighthouse Family Counseling, in Kokomo.
Dr. Edwards and his wife, Sabrina, have three children.
Dr. Edwards stated, “I have been so deeply blessed through interactions with folks during the selection process; it has felt more like a family reunion than first and second introductions. So, my heart is quickened with the thought of being part of the Grace community. I am eager to join with you next fall in serving our good God through the ministries at Grace.”
