History of SEI at JBCC
In 2008, Dr. John R. Weisz, former President and CEO of Judge Baker Children’s Center, brought the Summer Treatment Program to Boston, making it the only STP in New England. The program was originally directed by Dr. Erika K. Coles, who was trained by Dr. William E. Pelham, creator of STP, at the University of Buffalo.
In 2011, Dr. James Slavet, licensed psychologist at the Manville School, became the new director of the program.
In 2016, Allison Jekogian, became the director of the Summer Enrichment Institute. Allison will be completing her doctorate in clinical psychology this summer and will be working as a clinician at the Manville School starting in September 2016. Dr. James Slavet continues to be involved in the program as the senior consultant.
