Areas of Interest:
I joined the Randolph-Macon faculty in 1996. Before coming to Randolph-Macon College, I was a Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics and Chair of the Division of Clinical Psychology at the Health Sciences Center, Virginia Commonwealth University where I founded the Attention Deficit Disorders Clinic.
In 1995-1996, had the honor of being the President of the American Psychological Association and the recipient of numerous honors including the Outstanding ProfessionalAchievement Award from the Association for the Advancement of Psychology; Lee Salk Distinguished Service Award of the Society of Pediatric Psychology, the American Psychological Association's Award for Outstanding Contributions to Applied Psychology as a Professional Practice and the US Army's Outstanding Civilian Service Medal. In 1986 I was named a Fellow of the American Psychological Association.
In order to practice psychology, I hold a license as a clinical psychologist in the Commonwealth of Virginia and is nationally board certified in the practice of clinical psychology. Because of my interest in health care and health care delivery systems, I have testified before Congress on national health and research funding in psychology. And lastly, I have had a career long interest in attention deficit disorders and health policy presenting nationally and internationally in these areas.
Currently, I teach health psychology, psychopathology, psychological tests and assessment, theories of personality and psychotherapy, and occasionally, an honors course in the evolution of health care and policy. Additionally, I really enjoy mentoring students planning on careers in psychology or who have questions about psychology. As the students at Randolph-Macon College know, if the door is open; come on in!!
What do I do for fun? Glad you asked. I am a dedicated runner having logged over 33,000 miles, play basketball regularly and attend international meetings on psychology.
