Barbara Fleischer, Organizational Psychologist, Consultant and Researcher, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in psychology education.
Dr. Fleischer became involved in her profession while working at an army education center doing pre-GED work, she observed the importance of self-concept and the ability for people to learn. She saw the effect of poor leadership on people’s mental health and found that rather than trying to treat people after they had mental health problems, keeping them in a healthy environment would be very important. In her own academic pursuits, she earned an AB, cum laude from St. Louis University in 1970, a Master of Science from the institution in 1975, and a PhD in 1978. In recognition of the work she has contributed throughout her career, Dr. Fleischer received grants and accolades from the National Retired Teachers Association, the American Association of Retired Persons, Andrus Foundation, German Orphan Asylum and the Lilly Foundation.
Prior to retiring and receiving an associate professor emerita title, Dr. Fleischer was an integral faculty member of Loyola University Institute for Ministry. She directed the institute from 1995 to 2002. Her earlier positions include being a staff psychologist for the Wellness Institute, a director of training for the Associated Catholics Charities and as an organizational consultant for South Mississippi Home Health. The highlight of Dr. Fleischer’s career has been helping to develop and expand an extension program in the ministry. This program aimed to reach people in other areas of the country and eventually other countries. The program began in Scotland and it became the first Catholic graduation. In addition, being able to reach out to Africa with online education and contribute to ongoing ministry was another highlight.
