Welcome to Darya Zabelina & Patrick Forscher, who joined the faculty in Fall 2017.


Dr. Alex Dopp’s recent publications have focused on better characterizing the evidence base for treatment of serious juvenile offenders, as well as describing the process and impact of novel treatment implementation strategies (such as telepsychology and learning collaboratives). Reference: Dopp, A. R., Feldner, M. T., Mapes, A., & Wolkowicz, N. (2017). Implementation of telepsychology services in a university training clinic: Process and lessons learned. The Behavior Therapist, 40, 261-267.

With collaborators in Montreal, Dr. Doug Behrend demonstrated that even bilingual children prefer non-accented speakers to accented speakers.  Reference: Byers-Heinlein, K., Behrend, D. A., Said, L.
