Tammy D. Barry, Ph.D.
Dr. Barry is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and the Director of Clinical Training for the clinical psychology doctoral program. She received her Ph.D. from The University of Alabama in 2000. Dr. Barry has taught courses and supervised doctoral students’ clinical work at four institutions before joining Washington State University in Fall 2016. Dr. Barry’s research focuses on biologically-based and contextual correlates of child externalizing behaviors, including ADHD, aggression, and disruptive behaviors associated with autism. Factors examined in Dr. Barry’s Child Externalizing Behaviors Lab include neuropsychological functioning/endophenotypes, child temperament, parental psychopathology/stress, parenting practices, SES/neighborhood characteristics, and individual difference factors—all from a developmental psychopathology perspective through both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies. A second line of Dr. Barry’s research also focuses on the measurement and latent structure of externalizing behavior disorders, such as ADHD and oppositional defiant disorder.
