Clinical Psychology Faculty

The clinical faculty (listed below) are all active in research, and all clinical graduate students are welcome and expected to join in this activity. We provide strong training in research methods and skills through both close mentoring of our students and coursework. Faculty interests include familial and other factors that place children at risk, men’s mental health, marital interaction, and prevention of depression, as well as other areas. While we emphasize research and scholarship, we also provide closely supervised and broad-based training in our clinical practica. Our graduate students ordinarily are accepted at very good internships. All members of the faculty include some aspect of clinical activity or clinical teaching as part of their activities, in addition to their other teaching and research responsibilities.
