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.  

Within our doctoral program we offer major areas of study in Clinical Child Psychology and Clinical Neuropsychology, an emphasis in Family Psychology and exposure to Behavioral and Cognitive Psychology.  The clinical program is also the home of the Rudd Adoption Research Program which conducts research on adoption and connects adoption research with policy and practice.  We also maintain a strong relationship with the Center for Research on Families.

There are several faculty members with research and clinical interests in assessment and neuropsychology (Dr. Ready, Harvey, Stowe and Dr. Hope (adjunct)), 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, MartellPerry-Jenkins and Ready also engage in treatment/intervention outcome research.
