Professional Profile

Judith Adelson has chosen to work at Lynn University because it provides both faculty and students an opportunity to engage in dynamic and challenging learning experiences. Adelson finds that the benefit of working in a university of this size facilitates a climate of familiarity and frequent interaction between faculty and students. Her experience as both a professor and clinician, with a specialty in marriage and family therapy, has taught her the value of working in a context that fosters opportunities for developing meaningful relationships, and how these relationships encourage important linkages between learning and life experiences.

Judith Adelson has been a professor at Lynn University for more than six years. She began as an adjunct professor and is now an assistant professor with a dual appointment in human services and psychology. Prior to her appointment at Lynn University, Adelson divided her time between a clinical practice with a specialty in marriage and family therapy and supervision of graduate students in a marriage and family therapy program.
