Current department faculty have scholarly expertise in the following areas: psychotherapy process and outcome, educational and vocational development, community-based interventions, child development, mindfulness, and research methods with particular attention to multicultural issues (e.g., ethnic identity development and experiences, underrepresented college students, LGBTQ issues, social class, homelessness).
