Department of Psychology Psychopathology and Psychodynamics Lab


The Psychopathology and Psychodynamics Lab broadly focuses on adult psychopathology and treatment issues. We have a strong interest in anxiety and anxiety disorders and a current focus on expanding the range of psychopathology through studying some of the lesser-known (and more unusual) manifestations (e.g., isolated sleep paralysis, exploding head syndrome, death anxiety, taijin kyofusho).

Other current and ongoing lab interests include psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy, professional issues in clinical psychology (e.g., how to assess therapist competence), as well as the intersections between continental philosophy and clinical psychology.
