WSU Psychology Clinic People
|Walt Scott, Ph.D.|
Director, Psychology Clinic
Most recently, I have been interested in applying personality science, particularly social cognitive theory, to such clinical topics as case conceptualization and personality assessment. I am also interested in the role of cognitive self-regulation (e.g., goal representations, values, self-efficacy) and temperament in depression, as well as other forms of psychopathology. Finally, I am interested in social cognitive aspects of memory performance.

|Masha Gartstein, Ph.D.|
Director of Clinical Training
Dr. Gartstein’s research addresses social-emotional development, primarily in early childhood, with an emphasis on identifying typical trajectories of temperament development, as well as risk and protective factors relevant to the development of psychopathology. In addition, parental contributions to both temperament development and the emergence of symptoms/behavior problems continue to be examined. She has been fortunate to collaborate with a number of wonderful colleagues abroad, who contributed to another area of research she is involved in, namely cross-cultural study of temperament development and developmental psychopathology. Dr. Gartstein has also maintained a part-time private practice with the Educational and Psychological Services in Moscow, Idaho for the past 10 years, providing a variety of clinical services to children and families.

|Tammy D. Barry, Ph.D.
Dr. Barry is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology. 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.
