I regularly teach two graduate level classes: Psyc 547--Theories of Psychological Intervention and Psyc 594--Fieldwork. Periodically, I also teach Psyc 520T--Seminar in Personality Test Construction. Psyc 547 and 594 are core courses for the M.S. program in clinical psychology at CSUF. I have also taught Psyc 341--Abnormal and Psyc 431--Theories of Personality.I received the 2013 Outstanding Teaching Award from the College of the Humanities and Social Sciences at CSUF.Mentoring:I have chaired or co-chaired over 55 master's theses. You can view a list of unpublished master's theses that I have supervised at Cal. State Fullerton.I am the coordinator of the Master of Science graduate program in clinical psychology. Click here for more information about the M. S. Program.The M. S. Program is a balanced scientist-practitioner program that prepares students to get the MFT and LPCC licenses, or to go on for a Ph.D. or Psy.D. in clinical psychology. It gives graduates a strong research experience, as well as intensive, hands-on clinical training. The M.S. Program draws students from other Cal. State universities, the Univ. of California system, and universities across the United States. We also have enrolled many international students, most recently from India, Japan, Turkey and Taiwan. The Los Angeles Times recently listed Marriage and Family Therapists as one of the top ten fastest growing jobs in California.My research interests focus on people's generalized expectancies for negative mood regulation (NMRE). Much of this has been done in conjunction with Salvatore J. Catanzaro, Ph.D., at Illinois State Univ. The research is based in Julian B. Rotter's social learning theory. NMRE represent beliefs individuals have that, when they are in a bad mood, they can do something to make themselves feel better. People with strong beliefs in their ability to alleviate negative moods cope more adaptively with stress, and they experience less negative affect (anger, anxiety, depression, guilt) and fewer health problems. This research has been done on a variety of populations, including college students, caregivers for individuals with Alzheimer's disease, and police officers. Research suggests that those with stronger NMRE will experience greater symptom relief in psychotherapy, and that change in NMRE is an indicator of therapeutic improvement. The NMR Scale, which measures NMRE, has been translated into several languages: German, Spanish, Korean and Chinese versions have been validated. The validity study for the Japanese translation has recently been published. There also is a children's NMR Scale -- the NMR-Y.I am very interested in recruiting Japanese students for the M.S. program, who want to continue the research on the Japanese language NMR Scale, including both adult and child versions.Click on the link to go to the Negative Mood Regulation Research Page. I was a Fulbright scholar during the fall 2016 semester working with Prof. Haruhiko Shimoyama and his graduate students in the Clinical Psychology Department at the University of Tokyo in Japan. I taught classes to master's and doctoral students and conducted research on mood regulation among Japanese people and among Chinese international students.I served as chair of the Psychology Department at Fullerton from 2008 to 2014. The current Psychology Department chair is Dr. Eriko Self.CaliphorniaMid-21st Century Los Angeles: wracked by global warming, the city is now the western-most outpost of an Arab empire.
