Clinical Brownbag Series
September 25, 2020 - Clinical Student Talks (McGill University)
Speakers are yet to be announced
October 9, 2020 - Nicholas Eaton (Stony Brook University)
Dr. Eaton’s primary research interests involve the conceptualization and classification of psychopathology using quantitative methods such as latent class analysis, exploratory factor mixture modeling, item response theory (IRT), and model-based cluster analysis. He is also interested in mental health disparities between groups, particularly groups defined by sexual orientation.
October 30, 2020 - Koraly Pérez-Edgar (Penn State University)
Dr. Peréz-Edgar’s work focuses on understanding the relationship between early temperament traits and psychopathology, and the role of individual differences in attention in this relationship. She uses a multi-method approach involving direct observation of behavior, cognitive functioning, psychophysiology, and neuroimaging.
November 13, 2020 - Stanley Huey (University of Southern California)
Dr. Huey’s work focuses on reducing disparities in mental health by optimizing treatments for high-risk populations, particularly under-resourced ethnic minority youth. He examines factors contributing to mental health disparities, investigates psychotherapy mechanisms that lead to clinical change, and works to develop culturally sensitive brief interventions.
November 20, 2020 - Dennis C. Wendt (McGill University)
Dr. Wendt’s research focuses on developing and evaluating culturally sensitive mental health and substance abuse in Indigenous communities. He is also interested in evidence-based practice considerations for substance use disorders, especially in group psychotherapy.
December 18, 2020 - Sarah Racine (McGill University)
Dr. Racine’s research aims to elucidate how genetic/biological risk for eating disorders operates through personality and emotional characteristics. She also examines psychological and environmental factors that make individuals with such characteristics more likely to develop an eating disorder versus another psychological condition.
