As part of the Psychology Department Colloquium Series, Dr. Erin Henshaw will present her current research on perinatal depression and help-seeking behavior.
Dr. Henshaw is an associate professor of clinical psychology and licensed psychologist trained in interpersonal and cognitive- behavioral approaches to treating adult psychopathology. She completed her Ph.D. at Eastern Michigan University and her APA-accredited predoctoral internship at University of Michigan Counseling and Psychological Services.
At Denison Dr. Henshaw teaches courses in abnormal psychology, clinical psychology, introductory psychology, research methods and health psychology. Her research addresses the following questions: (1) When individuals suffer from psychological distress, what thoughts or actions prompt them to get professional treatment…or not? (2) How can we design educational programs to reduce treatment barriers and increase coping skills for depression and anxiety?
Dr. Henshaw is especially interested in answering these questions during the perinatal period, which represents a particularly important time for mothers and fathers to receive timely mental health treatment.
The event is free and open to the public.
