Dr. Rebecca Draper is an Assistant Professor of Social Work at Roberts Wesleyan College, as well as an adjunct clinical psychologist at the RWC Counseling Center. She teaches undergraduate courses in both macro and micro-level social work, as well as graduate courses in child/adolescent development and group counseling for the Education and Psychology Departments. Along with maintaining a small caseload at the Counseling Center, Dr. Draper has been instrumental in developing a training program to provide clinical practicum and internship opportunities for MSW and PsyD students, a passion which developed out of her own experiences as a practicum student in the center. In addition to these responsibilities, Dr. Draper has conducted research on the impact of Online Sexual Exploitation of Children in the Philippines. She has enjoyed the opportunity to travel internationally while using her psychological training (in both clinical and research skills) in order to better understand the needs of the survivors, their families, and the community.
Dr. Draper and her family are happy to call North Chili their home and can often be seen walking their boxer-beagle, Homer, around the community. Her three children are involved in sports and the family enjoys traveling and trying out new restaurants.
