Dr. Catherine Deering, Clayton State University professor of Psychology, has been appointed to the editorial board for the Journal of Family Psychology.
Appointments to the Board are made by the editor and associate editors of the journal, based on their assessment of the quality and value of the potential appointee’s research article reviews for the journal over time. Deering has been a reviewer for the journal since 2001.
The Journal of Family Psychology is a top-tier American Psychological Association (APA) journal, and it is considered the premiere family research journal, publishing innovative empirical research with real-world applicability. Deering’s areas of expertise include family systems theory, sibling relationships, variations in family structure (e.g., divorce, single parent families, adoption), family communication patterns, and couples and family therapy interventions.
In addition to teaching in the undergraduate and masters program in psychology at Clayton State, Deering is an associate clinical professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Emory University School of Medicine, where she teaches and supervises psychiatry residents, pre-doctoral psychology interns, and postdoctoral psychology fellows.
