PSYC 315: Psychology of Family Relations

The goals of this course are for undergraduate students:

  1. To gain a comprehensive understanding of selected topics within the psychology of family relationships.
  2. To gain experience in critically evaluating the research on psychology of the family.
  3. To develop skills in critically thinking about topics within psychology of the family.

The knowledge and skills acquired during this intermediate-level course may most benefit students who plan a career in psychology and require the knowledge presented here as a building block to further study. The course will also be of value to those for whom psychology is a secondary interest and who want to be informed consumers of this topic area within psychological science.

PSYC 750: Clinical Supervision

Supervision of cases involving Cognitive Therapy for depression or anxiety, parent management training for families of children with conduct disorders, and couples therapy (Christensen and Jacobson’s integrative behavioral couples therapy). Offered to advanced graduate students in the Clinical Psychology Program, arranged individually with the student and with the approval of the student’s advisor.

PSYC 547: Intervention II (Families: Processes, Psychopathology, Assessment, and Intervention)

The goals of the course are to develop critical thinking, knowledge, and skills in the following areas of study:

  1. Healthy family development and processes, including their cultural variations, and implications for the development of couples’ and family problems and psychopathology in individuals
  2. Family processes that are associated with the development or maintenance of psychopathology in children or adolescents; processes within couples that are associated with marital distress.
  3. Empirically validated and other evidence based methods of assessment and intervention for families with a child who has psychopathology and for couples with marital distress.

This is a required course for second year students in the Clinical Psychology Program.

Other Courses Offered on an Irregular Basis

PSYC 770: Developmental Psychopathology

The primary goal of this course is for students to begin to answer one primary question: How can knowledge of normal development inform our efforts to elucidate the etiology of disorders, to assess and classify child psychopathology, and to develop effective treatments for childhood disorders?

In this seminar, students consider the relationships between the fields of developmental psychology (the study of normal social, emotional, cognitive development, etc.) and clinical psychology (the studies of psychopathology and behavior change). Developmental psychopathology is a relatively new field and is still emerging. It represents the contributions of principles of normal development to the understanding of the origins and course of individual patterns of adaptation and maladaptation and behavior change.

Students of all aspects of psychology will benefit from this course. Training to become a clinical psychologist will be enhanced by the opportunity to integrate relevant knowledge in cognitive, behavioral, affective, social and biological development, and family relations into issues of clinical concern. Conversely, developmental psychology and neuroscience and animal behavior students will have the opportunity to explore how information on developmental deviances can contribute to understandings of both normal development and psychopathology.

Psych. 770 Developmental Psychology: A Clinical Scientist Perspective

The course is an advanced developmental psychology course with a specific focus on aspects of the field that are essential for an understanding of developmental psychopathology. The course meets essentially two current highly unmet needs: (a) it will provide an upper level, advanced course in developmental psychology, which we expect will appeal to our undergraduates who are planning to attend graduate school and seek advanced training, and (b) it provides a foundation course for our graduate students in Clinical Psychology or Neuroscience and Animal Behavior, who may be interested in models of psychopathology or treatment for disorders for which an understanding of developmental psychology is essential.

Please visit the Clinical Program page for a list of faculty who will be interviewing applicants for Fall 2020 admission.


My research interests, grounded in the field of developmental psychopathology, concern the mechanisms by which mothers with depression may transmit psychopathology to their children. Within a developmental psychopathology perspective, I am particulary interested in risk and protective factors and vulnerabilities to the development of psychopathology. I am also interested in the development of evidence-based approaches to the prevention of perinatal depression and examining the potential benefits to the infants.

Current Projects

  1. Maternal depression as an early life stress for infants
  2. Developing and testing the feasibility and effectiveness of a form of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, adapted specifically for pregnant women, in reducing depression and associated problems such as stress, anxiety, and pregnancy and birth related complications
  3. Vulnerabilities to depression in preschool- and school-aged children of depressed mothers
  4. The development of a measure of children’s perceptions of parental sadness
  5. The development of children’s understanding of sadness and other emotions in others, especially in their parents
  6. Women’s narratives on their experiences of having depression and raising children
