    Baltimore County, Md. -- Dr. Ann Kaiser Stearns, of Towson, was recently awarded the "Maryland Psychology Teacher of the Year Award" from the statewide Columbia-based Maryland Psychological Association. Stearns is a Psychology professor at The Community College of Baltimore County, Essex (CCBC Essex), where she has been teaching for 35 years and seven years for the Baltimore County Police Academy. Her expertise is in studying and teaching about resiliency and how people overcome and learn from episodes of crisis, loss or trauma in their lives. She teaches law enforcement personnel, nursing and other students. "My goal is to take the basic skills and concepts of psychology and make them work in public service," Stearns said. "For me, teaching has not been an occupation but has been and remains my vocation and passion." She is the author of three books, Living Through Personal Crisis, Coming Back: Rebuilding Lives After Crisis and Loss and Living Through Job Loss. She has lectured around the country and has been an expert guest on CNN. Her most recent publications on grief management, "Trauma Aftermath: Who is Really at Risk?" and "Resilience in the Aftermath of Trauma and Adversity," were published in 2003 and 2004 in the Maryland Psychologist.
