If there ever was anyone in the history of human services who has devoted his life to preventing abuse, Roger Dale MacNamara is that person.
From the time that Roger MacNamara suffered abuse himself during four years at a military school (which no longer exists) throughout his entire career as a college lecturer, a teacher, a consultant, a career service provider and administrator, his life's work was to develop principles and procedures that would assist others in the prevention of abuse.
Roger was instrumental in forging monumental changes in human services including institutional reform in the 1960's, institutional litigation in the 1970's, establishing State-Private partnerships in the 1980's, and increasing privatization and entrepreneurial initiatives in the 1990's. He is the founder of Abuse Prevention SpecialistsTM, and the author of Freedom From Abuse (1988), and Creating Abuse-free Environments for Children, the Disabled, and the Elderly, (1992). Roger has also contributed a number of articles to professional and lay journals and periodicals.
Roger was honored by the Connecticut Chapter of the American Association of Mental Retardation as "Professional of the Year" and recognized by act of the Connecticut Legislature for Meritorious Service. He served on the Connecticut State Developmental Disabilities Council and as a member of the Connecticut Task Force on Autism.
Roger's academic achievements, professional accomplishments, and the honors bestowed upon him can only suggest the vitality, passion, and compassion of his leadership. To know Roger was inspirational and life-changing.
