SHP PROFESSOR WINS NATIONAL TEACHING AWARD

The Rutgers School of Health Related Professions is proud to announce that Peter Basto, assistant professor and director of the Psychiatric Rehabilitation associate degree program, was honored with the national LeRoy Spaniol Award.

Given by the national Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association, the award is presented to an individual who has made outstanding contributions toward educating and mentoring a new generation of leaders.

Mr. Basto, who earned his master’s degree in Psychiatric Rehabilitation at SHP, has been a mental health professional for 30 years, and has been an educator at our school for 16 years.

“As a teacher, Peter has been able to combine his passion for teaching and mentoring future practitioners with his dedication to helping persons living with serious mental illness,’’ stated Nora Barrett, associate professor, department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Counseling professions, in her nomination.

“Professors who teach the same course year after year often keep recycling their course materials. Peter takes pride in updating his course content to reflect the most current literature. He also actively searches for and creates engaging activities for our students. His primary goal is to prepare future psychiatric rehabilitation practitioners who are highly skilled and knowledgeable and who are able to apply the principles and values of our profession.”

The LeRoy Spaniol Educator Award was presented to Mr. Basto in Boston on May 23, in honor of Dr. Spaniol who was executive publisher of the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal for twenty‐three years and served as an advisor to many PRA members who, in turn, made significant contributions to the field of psychiatric rehabilitation.
