Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I received my PhD in clinical psychology in 1986, and have been a member of the Adelphi University faculty since 2006.  My research currently focuses on three main issues: 1) conceptualizing and assessing personality pathology, 2) multimethod assessment and test score integration; and 3) the dynamics of interpersonal dependency and dependent personality disorder.  Within each of these areas members of my research group draw upon diverse methods including laboratory studies, clinical investigations, integrative literature reviews, and meta-analyses.  A unifying theme in our work is the belief that rigorous psychological inquiry should integrate concepts and findings from a variety of domains within and outside psychology.  To date more than 60 undergraduate and graduate students have co-authored peer-reviewed papers originating in my lab.

Beyond my research and writing, teaching is at the core of my professional identity, and it informs every aspect of my professional life.  I enjoy being in the classroom today as much as I did when I began teaching (maybe more so).

I will be accepting new students into my research group in the fall of 2020.
