Kaplan University Launches Online Center For The Helping Professions
Kaplan University, a leader in higher education innovation, today announced the launch of its new online Center for the Helping Professions, a website designed to help visitors stay current in the fields of psychology, human services, early childhood development and educational paraprofessional. The online center features articles from Kaplan faculty, current industry headlines, suggested web resources and applications, and information about Kaplan University degree programs.
“This Center for the Helping Professions is aligned with Kaplan University’s mission of creating an innovative online learning environment,” said Sara Sander, M.A. dean of Kaplan University’s College of Arts and Sciences. “In addition to providing a valuable resource for students in our degree programs, the center also provides a free forum for learning, discovery and the vigorous exchange of ideas that is open to the general public.”
Each month, the center will profile an issue relevant to these helping professions, such as childhood obesity, bullying, separation anxiety in children heading off to school and addiction. The center will also feature webinars and links for information about a variety of topics, including childhood development, psychology research news and baby brain development. It follows the successful 2009 launch of Kaplan University’s Center for Health and Wellness ( http://healthandwellness.kaplan.edu).
