Dr. Christopher McCarthy is a leading authority on stress and coping. His research focuses on three distinct lines of inquiry in stress and coping: (a) wellness and health psychology, (b) the identification of psychological resources that can help prevent stress, and (c) extending basic research on stress and coping to educational settings, particularly in understanding the stress that educators and counselors experience. In recent years Dr. McCarthy has served as the Training Director of the Counseling Psychology program, Chair of the Graduate Studies Committee, and Director of the Counselor Education program.
