Clinical Psychology

Clinical students discussing research at a conference.


Clinical psychology faculty engage in basic and applied studies of psychopathology, development, emotion, cognition, psychotherapy, neuropsychology, and family systems.  

Several faculty conduct research and/or support research in Child, Adolescent, and Family (CAF) psychology (Dr. Grotevant, Harvey, Perry-Jenkins, Powers, Scherer, Sayer, and Stowe, as well as Dr. Arnold, an affiliated faculty member). These faculty study development across the life course, from infancy through adolescence to adulthood, with attention to the ways in which social contexts, such as family, race, ethnicity, and social class affect individual well-being and development. CAF faculty members maintain a strong relationship with the Rudd Adoption Research Program.

There are several faculty members with research and clinical interests in assessment and neuropsychology (Dr. Ready, Harvey, Stowe, as well as adjuncts Drs. Rutherford and Hope), which is an area of concentration for many students in the program. The assessment of ADHD is an area of convergence across these faculty members. 

Drs. Constantino and Dixon-Gordon focus on adult psychotherapy treatment outcome research and adult psychopathology. Drs. Harvey, Perry-Jenkins, Powers, and Ready also engage in treatment/intervention outcome research.
