M Lydia Khuri

Biography

I am a clinical associate faculty in the Department of Educational Psychology/ Division of Counseling Psychology and a licensed clinical psychologist. I administer the practicum program, help prepare doctoral students for internship, and teach courses related to the practice of counseling/psychotherapy with an emphasis on effective delivery and meaningful outcomes, and on the history of psychology.

Prior to joining Educational Psychology, I was a program director in the Department of Housing of four undergraduate, living-learning communities focused on domestic and global diversity, women in math, science, and engineering, students in the pre-health professions, and undergraduate research. From 1997 until 2004, I worked as an assistant coordinator in the Program on Intergroup Relations, a social justice and experiential education program.

Since 1998, I have maintained a part-time, independent practice working with adults, adolescents, and children using interpersonal, psychodynamic, and multicultural frameworks. My clinical work is informed by theory and research on development, affect regulation, mentalization, and the psychotherapy process.
