Mental health funding cuts to be Hickman Scholar Lecture topic Sept. 13

Gary M. Burlingame, psychology professor at Brigham Young University, will speak at the annual Martin B. Hickman Outstanding Scholar Lecture Thursday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. in 250 Spencer W. Kimball Tower.

The title of his lecture is “Addressing Mental Health Funding Cuts with Evidence-Based Interventions: The Promise of Small Group Treatments.” Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.

Burlingame received a doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of Utah in 1983 and joined BYU’s faculty the same year. He has served as a consultant to more than 20 federal, state and private entities, including the White House, the Department of Labor and the Food and Drug Administration.

He also has received a number of national and international career awards, including recognition from the American Psychological Association, the American Group Psychotherapy Association, and the German College of Psychosomatic Medicine.

The lecture is held annually in honor of Martin B. Hickman, a former dean of the College of Family, Home and Social Sciences. Hickman is considered the father of BYU's American Heritage Program as well as an instrumental hand in creating the Women's Research Institute, the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, the Family Studies Center and other significant research efforts.
