Craig Rodriguez-Seijas, Assistant Professor of Psychology, will present some of his latest research.

Craig Rodriguez-Seijas, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Clinical Science area at the University of Michigan. He earned his B.Sc. from the University of the West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago, and completed his Ph.D. at Stony Brook University. Dr. Rodriguez-Seijas further completed his predoctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship at the Methods to Improve Diagnostic Assessment and Services (MIDAS) program at Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School.

Dr. Rodriguez-Seijas’s research interests lie in (1) understanding the nature of psychopathology and (2) investigating the ways in which stigma, discrimination, and marginalization impact the manifestation, assessment, conceptualization, and treatment of psychopathology. Dr. Rodriguez-Seijas typically explores transdiagnostic models of psychopathology, consistent with the aims of the Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology (HiTOP) Consortium’s efforts. In addition, he is committed to the dissemination of evidence-based intervention approaches for working with sexual and gender minority patients.

More information about his research focus can be found on his lab website: Stigma, Psychopathology, & Assessment (SPLAT) Lab

This program is in partnership with The University of Michigan Department of Psychology.
