 SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Brian Upton, Evangel University’s Counseling Services director, recently co-authored an article published in the journal Behavioral Sciences & the Law.

 The title of the article is “Examining Mental Health Symptoms in Male and Female Incarcerated Juveniles.” The purpose of this study is to determine how the prevalence rates of mental health symptoms differ in male and female juvenile offenders.

The study found significant differences between males and females on several clinical scales. These findings are consistent with past studies that have identified differences in mental health symptoms between genders.

Upton began work at Evangel in 2003. He supervises operations for the counseling portion of the Wellness Center, which provides services for the members of the Evangel campus community.

“As director, Brian provides consultation for student development programming,” said Dr. David Bundrick, vice president for student development. “He provides campus programming of a preventive and restorative nature.”

Upton also administrates the master’s level practicum counselor training program.
