Department of Psychology
Seton Hall University
United States of America
She started her academic career at Seton Hall University after receiving my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Northwestern University and completing my clinical internship through the Vanderbilt University/Nashville Department of Veterans Affairs Internship Consortium. Since arriving at Seton Hall, she has taught a range of courses, but my favorites are Abnormal Psychology, International Psychology, Introduction to Psychology, and Statistics. She also enjoys translating my teaching into writing, and has co-authored several textbooks for Worth Publishers/Macmillan, including textbooks for statistics and introduction to psychology. She has been involved in international psychology throughout my career. She has developed a course in international psychology at Seton Hall, served as a United Nations representative for the American Psychological Association for five years, and conducted research on international psychology education in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar. She is currently pursuing two lines of research, and welcome undergraduate and graduate student involvement in both. First, she is interested in perceptions of people with psychological disorders, including the stigma associated with mental illness. Second, she studies the education and career trajectories of women and men pursuing professions in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
