Dr. McCloskey has been a faculty member at the Graduate Institute of Professional Psychology (GIPP) since the fall of 2002. As a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Connecticut, she recently completed two years of providing violence-prevention clinical services modeled after the Positive Adolescent Choices Training (PACT) program at a City of Hartford middle school. She also provided live co-therapy supervision to GIPP students providing these services at the middle school. While working in Ohio, Dr. McCloskey also served as the Team Leader of a multi-professional group providing general mental health services to inmates at the Ohio Reformatory for Women, the state’s only women’s prison. She also served as an Assistant Professor and the Clinical Director for a batterers’ treatment program housed at the Wright State University School of Professional Psychology, providing training to Psy.D. students in the area of domestic violence. In the past, she was a civilian scientist for the U.S. Air Force as a nationally licensed ergonomist (e.g., research psychologist), and was involved in physiological and brain imaging studies concerning human workload and workstation design where she eventually headed a multi-million dollar effort aimed at measuring human performance in high-g environments. Her present research interests involve interpersonal violence prevention and intervention, and she and colleague Nancy Grigsby were recently awarded the 2006 Psychotherapy with Women Award conferred by the Society for the Psychology of Women (Division 35) of the American Psychological Association for their article entitled, “The Ubiquitous Clinical Problem of Adult Intimate Partner Violence” The Need for Routine Assessment.” Dr. McCloskey’s present teaching interests center on the development of multicultural competency curricula and training for the next generation of clinical psychologists.
