Counselor honored for scholarship
April 20, 2010
KALAMAZOO--Dr. James M. Croteau, professor of counselor education and counseling psychology at Western Michigan University, has been ranked as the most productive scholar in the counseling psychology area of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender scholarship.
That assessment of Croteau appeared in an analysis of research productivity in LGBT studies that was featured in the January issue of the Counseling Psychologist. In addition, WMU and its counseling psychology program were ranked third nationally in terms of LGBT scholarship in counseling psychology.
Scholarly productivity rankings were based on publication in eight national refereed counseling psychology journals over the period of 1990 to 2008 and the impact of an author's work as reflected by citation in other articles.
A WMU faculty member since 1990, Croteau is an acknowledged expert in gay and lesbian issues in the workplace and on college campuses. He is a fellow of the American Psychological Association's Society for Counseling Psychology as well as of the APA's Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Issues.
