Ms. Diksies recently obtained her second Master's degree in May 2008 from Rutgers School of Social Work. In 2002, she received her first Master's in Educational Psychology from Montclair State University. Ms. Diksies has extensive experience working in the field of psychology. Her primary interest is working with children and adolescents who have been victims of abuse and neglect. She has managed several programs that addressed the needs of this population. Ms. Diksies has worked closely with a wide range of agencies including schools, DYFS, and the juvenile justice system. For the past 7 years, she has developed and implemented a summer camp which aims to teach children and adolescents how to resolve conflicts in a peaceful manner. Presently Ms. Diksies is focusing her efforts on improving the quality of social services in the community. She intends to accomplish this by introducing students to MSW level classes through non-matriculated courses offered by the Professional Development Department.
