Mary T. Rourke PhD

Assistant Professor

  • PhD Clinical and Developmental Psychology 1998

    Bryn Mawr College (PA)

  • DPSY 836 Advanced Theory and Practice in School Psychology I

  • DPSY 837 Advanced Theory and Practice of School Psychology II

My scholarship has been concentrated in the areas of pediatric and school psychology, with a focus on the clinical applications of research and the formulation of practice guidelines for health care and school professionals. Student dissertations under my mentorship have explored child and family adjustment to cancer and other major pediatric medical issues. Recent publications have included chapters providing guidelines to medical care providers on meeting the psychological needs of children and families with severe illness, guidelines to school teams on meeting the needs of traumatized or maltreated students, and a formulation of the role of gender in cognitive assessment.
