Biography

Dr. June Madsen Clausen is Professor and former Chair of the Department of Psychology, and former Associate Dean for Academic Effectiveness in the College of Arts and Sciences. She is currently serving as Program Director of the PsyD in Clinical Psychology in the School of Nursing and Health Professions, where she teaches practicum courses and clinical dissertation seminars. In Psychology, Dr. Clausen teaches a variety of courses in clinical and research psychology. She is Consultant and past Director of the Foster Care Research Group, which focuses on evaluating mental health interventions for foster youth. She is a licensed psychologist with a clinical practice in which she provides evaluation, consultation, and treatment for children and adults who have experienced trauma.

Dr. Clausen's Teaching Philosophy, in her own words:
I believe that bringing real world experience into the classroom is immensely valuable. I also believe that it is very important for students to have opportunities to apply what they learn in the classroom to the real world. I am an educator, a scientist, and a clinician. My teaching is informed by my experiences in my clinical practice and by the work I do in my research lab - every time I teach. My courses include multiple assignments and opportunities for students to think about how to apply what they are learning from their textbooks, from my lectures, and from class discussions to the world in which they live and work and recreate. In my clinical courses, I challenge students to immerse themselves in applied experiences in which they feel uncomfortable but by which they will be pushed to utilize their classroom-based learning to make a positive difference for those around them.
