Sanjay R. Nath PhD

Associate Dean and Director

  • PhD Clinical Psychology 2004

    Temple University (PA)

  • DPSY 568 Historical and Philosophical Foundations of Psychology

  • DPSY 509 Diversity

  • DPSY 795 Transitioning to the Professional Role

  • DPSY 605 Introduction to Cross-Cultural Psychology

My research areas include multiculturalism, how to practice culturally competent psychotherapy, and issues faced by minority groups in accessing mental health care. In particular, I retain an interest in immigrant populations, indigenous healing and mental health/illness in non-US (Asian) countries, and cross-cultural differences in self and other. I also have a focused research interest in the area of suicide, and in particular socio-cultural factors such as religion, ethnicity, gender, and country of origin that may impact suicide risk. One additional strand of research interest is based upon my experience working in college counseling settings and with college students clinically, where I have studied issues of access and utilization of mental health services by college students.
