Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) August 5, 2008
Karen J. Osterle, MSSA, LICSW, was recently honored with inclusion in the Academic Keys Who's Who in Medicine Academia, the premier source for academic employment. She will be included in a database of outstanding faculty and administrators in higher education.
The Academic Keys Who's Who was created to offer universities a venue to efficiently recruit for higher-level faculty and administrative positions. Academic recruiters can peruse a catalog of academic disciplines to find outstanding candidates and research their credentials.
Ms. Osterle has over 10 years of clinical experience, having been licensed at the highest level since 1998. She teaches medical students enrolled in The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences how to interview prospective patients in the most effective way possible and under a wide variety of circumstances. The upcoming fall semester marks her third year as a clinical instructor at the school.
In her private practice, she works with couples and helps individuals who are grappling with depression and anxiety in Washington, DC. She particularly enjoys working with the international community.
Ms. Osterle attended the Washington School of Psychiatry for three years and earned a Master of Science in Social Administration degree from Case Western Reserve University. She is a member of the National Association of Social Workers, the American Psychological Association, The International Psychotherapy Institute, The Washington School of Psychiatry, and the Capital Area Physicians for Human Rights.
Ms. Osterle attributes her success to her love for her work. The most gratifying aspect of her career has been the increasing opportunities to help those who have been referred to her by others with whom she has worked in the past, including DC psychologists, psychotherapists, and physicians as well as the couples and patients themselves. "I remind myself every day what an honor and a privilege it is to be able to teach people about themselves and their relationships, and about what they are capable of achieving," said Osterle, "and there is nothing more flattering than having someone who knows your work give out your name as someone who can be trusted to help."
