WEST ORANGE, N.J. August 2, 2012The American Psychological Association (APA) chose John DeLuca, PhD, vice president for Research at Kessler Foundation, as the recipient of the 2012 Roger G.

Presented annually by Division 22 (Rehabilitation Psychology) of the APA, this award recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding lifelong contribution to rehabilitation psychology through empirical research, conceptual/theoretical development or both.

"It is immensely gratifying to work in this field, contributing to new ways to maximize function for people with disabilities. I am honored to receive this acknowledgment by the APA," said Dr. DeLuca. "My goal is to continue to contribute to rehabilitation research that helps people achieve their best in their personal lives, in the community and in the workplace."

About the Award

Roger G. Barker, PhD (1903-1990) and colleagues were the first to conceptualize the "behavior setting" to help explain the interplay between the individual and the immediate environment. Barker is credited with founding ecological psychology and is acknowledged as a pioneer in rehabilitation psychology. In 1943, Barker developed a course curriculum for psychological rehabilitation for Stanford University, which educated professionals caring for the wounded warriors of World War II.
