Ted Bartholomew, Ph.D.
My research focuses on psychotherapy processes and mental illness from international, multicultural, and positive psychological lenses as well as methodology in psychological research. I set out to answer questions about what makes psychotherapy work, how culture and social justice play roles in mental health, and how researchers ask questions from diverse methodological stances in community and international contexts. Drawing from the contextual model (Frank & Frank, 1991), much of this work emphasizes cultural agreeability of psychological healing. I rely upon a scientist-practitioner approach to integrating empiricism with clinical work while also being introduced to new cultures in the United States and in Namibia. In accomplishing this work, I employ a variety of methodologies included mixed methods and qualitative designs.
