Behavioral Health Partial Program (BHPP)


Mission Statement

The BHPP Clinical Research Program conducts research to improve our understanding and treatment of mood, anxiety, personality, and psychotic disorders. The BHPP exemplifies an integrative approach in which research informs clinical practice, and clinical practice informs research.

Research Training

The BHPP provides research training and mentorship to many types of trainees, including clinical psychology post-doctoral fellows, pre-doctoral interns, practicum students, and undergraduate student visitors and academic credit students, BHPP counselors. BHPP trainees are involved in the entire research process and regularly present their work in poster presentations, symposia, and peer-reviewed manuscripts.

Please contact Dr. Courtney Beard ( if you are interested in joining our research team.

The BHPP collects patient data via daily computerized self-report instruments and a one-time clinician-administered diagnostic interview. Together, these data are used to inform individualized case conceptualization and treatment planning. Patients may also consent for their data to be de-identified and analyzed for research purposes.
