Clinical, Happiness, & Health Psychology

CCPostcard.jpg

Because so many of my students are interested in health, counseling, and clinical psychology, I supervise a lot of student research projects related to mental health issues.  Some of these turn out well enough to get published or at least presented at a conference.  I have also written a number of popular press essays that are relevant to this area of study.  A sampling can be seen below.
