For over 30 years, psychoanalytically interested students and faculty have met several times a semester during the Monday breaks. During these meetings we engaged in a variety of activities such as case discussions, presentations of dissertation research, discussion of special topics and theories not covered in course work, introductions to measures and publications such as the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual, presentations by guests from outside the department, and discussions of current events. During the 2017-2018 academic year, our psychoanalytic “study group” has grown and diversified in both its aim and scope of activities. We have given ourselves a title and developed a website and library. The Psychoanalytic Studies Group (PSG) is no longer only a Student Interest Group as we have expanded our membership to include alums, faculty, and supervisors.
We are reaching out to you, in our roles as the PSG Faculty and Student Coordinators, to share information pertaining to resources available through the group, recent scholarly and professional activities of our members, and our future projects and aspirations. We are inviting anyone interested –including alums, supervisors, faculty, and students — to become affiliated with the PSG. There are many ways to connect and to be engaged, as the PSG is no longer limited to an on-campus meeting.

Steve Fein, PhD, social psychologist and Chair and Professor in the Department of Psychology at Williams College in Williamstown, MA, spoke to faculty and students within our department about The Arc of Prejudice: Some Social Psychological Perspectives. With a very engaging style, Dr. Fein discussed prejudice which, in addition to being a very timely topic, is an area of great importance on so many levels. We hear so much about these issues these days so it was especially important to hear a social psychology research perspective on constructs such as implicit and explicit bias. After the presentation, Dr. Fein met with students in the department’s Social Psychology class.
Lorraine Mangione gave an invited presentation at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital, also known as the Bedford VA, on “Working with the Dreams of the Bereaved.” We have the good fortune to have had a long-standing training relationship with the Bedford VA, and it was an honor for Lorraine to be able to share some of her work on grief and loss, and particularly the presence and use of dreams during grieving, with the dedicated social workers and psychologists there.
PsyD student Katie Gorman presented a poster titled “Criterion Validity of MoCA Scores in a Public Inpatient Psychiatry Sample” at the Massachusetts Neuropsychological Society Science Symposium at the Algonquin Club in Boston on May 22.
Martha Straus, PhD, professor in the department of Clinical Psychology, recently appeared on BCTV, the Brattleboro VT cable channel, to discuss how parents can avoid over-reacting or disengaging from their teenager’s very normal desire to test limits, question authority, argue about norms and values, and insist on learning life’s lessons the hard way. The interview, part of the Brattleboro Retreat’s “Keep Talking” series, precedes her continuing education workshop at the Brattleboro Retreat on June 8 on treating traumatized teens.
Antioch University New England’s Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program is celebrating one of the most geographically and ethnically diverse entering classes in our history, joining us from 11 states. Our success in recruiting this year is a credit to the inspiring participation of our Program’s faculty, students, and staff – who can resist the invitation to spend more time among them? – as well as to the outstanding support of our Student Services and Admissions offices. We look forward to welcoming our new community members into our midst in the Fall.
Lorraine Mangione, PhD and her colleague Roz Forti, LICSW, PhD recently published Beyond midlife and before retirement: A short-term women’s group in International Journal of Group Psychotherapy.
One of the things this journal now does since it is published by Taylor and Francis is give free access to a limited number of articles. If you are interested in the topic, please feel free to click on the link below the abstract, and depending on the number of people who have accessed the article, a copy may be available for you.
As women move into the second half of life and towards retirement, they may experience many changes and transitions, including in health, relationships, career choices, and spirituality. Some of those changes can be distressing, such as serious health problems for themselves or their families, increased isolation, multiple losses of important people, feelings of uselessness and lack of a meaningful role, and growing questions or struggles around spirituality. Time is often seen as moving faster and increasingly limited. This short-term group offers an opportunity for women to reflect upon issues of identity, values, choices, desires, and hopes regarding relationships, work and other activities, spirituality, and health to create new visions. We describe an integrated theoretical framework that includes existentialism, mindfulness, adult development, object relations, attachment, and relational cultural therapy. We discuss the group’s underlying assumptions in terms of its short-term and semi-structured nature and its format, and suggest exercises, with examples highlighting important learning and/or group interaction. Finally, we address the need for more intensive psychotherapy, outliers, ensuring participation, and our own responses.
Faculty member Alexander Blount, PhD, was quoted in the current issue of The National Psychologist. In Psychology Lags Behind Psychiatry in Health Integration Readiness, Dr. Blount commented on integrating behavioral health into primary care and psychologists’ training in this field. This is a major area of study and interest for our Department and for the field of psychology, and we are pleased to see discussion on these important innovations.
Clinical faculty member Roger Peterson, PhD, and student, Kate Lambos, have an article in press.
Peterson, R. L., & Lambos, K. A. (In press). A sociocultural-constructionist epistemology for the psychology of aging. Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Psychology.
This paper describes a sociocultural-constructionist epistemology that stands alongside more traditional psychology epistemologies for the study of aging. This position is more-directly relevant to practice. It emphasizes “local” and levels of local knowledge, Bruner’s ideas on cultural psychology, and how culture is embedded in narrative. Kate Lambos, a particularly talented student, worked closely with Roger on this paper.
Students of the Support Group for Ethnic and Racial Diversity (SERD)/Disaster Shakti of the Department of Clinical Psychology, Antioch University New England, held a trauma conference, entitled, Defining Trauma and Resilience on April 12th and 13th, 2018 at our campus in Keene, New Hampshire.
Presentations addressed trauma in its various forms, causes, and contexts: physical and sexual abuse, elder abuse, war, racism, GLBTQ+ marginalization, sexual harassment and assault, complex trauma, continuous trauma, social oppressions, refugee status, global sociopolitical events, and disasters. Authors were encouraged to address the intersectionality of these traumas (e.g., being an older adult, African American transgender veteran). Resilience resources for the prevention of and recovery from trauma were discussed.
The conference was free so that graduate students and early career professionals could attend and share their enthusiasm for their developing knowledge, practice skills, and self-reflexivity as practitioners and scholars.
Marti Straus is presenting on child and adolescent treatment at the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium in Washington, DC (March 22-25). Her topics are Coregulating Together (under Therapeutic Activities with Kids and Families) and How to Get Unhooked (under Treating Traumatized Teens).
She has also recently produced a 12 hour webinar for Jack Hirose and Associates in Vancouver on treatment of adolescent attachment trauma.
Dr. Kathi Borden, Professor of Clinical Psychology, attended the American Psychological Association’s (APA’s) Council of Editors (COE) meeting in Washington, DC on March 15th and 16th. At this meeting, editors of most APA journals meet to discuss and stay informed about issues relevant to publications in psychology. As the incoming editor of the APA journal Professional Psychology: Research and Practice, Dr. Borden found it very helpful to meet with the other editors and get to know this new set of colleagues. Among many issues discussed were standards for describing qualitative and quantitative methods and data sharing, a practice that makes raw data from psychology studies available online. Also discussed were the need to include the socioeconomic status of research participants in manuscripts, whether manuscripts should undergo double-blind or “unmasked” reviews, information on most and least cited articles in APA journals, and many other topics.
Dr. Leatrice Oram, Antioch University Director for Accreditation & Academic Compliance spoke about Introversion and Leadership in a recent AUNE Clinical Psychology Management class. It was interesting and very helpful to understand the ways in which introverts can and do lead, and how and why the world and organizations can benefit from their leadership. We envision all of our psychology doctoral students as potential leaders in their fields and future organizations.
Dr. Oram earned her doctorate in Antioch’s Leadership and Change program. Her dissertation, A Method to My Quietness: A Grounded Theory Study of Living and Leading with Introversion, is a rich and evocative qualitative study of leaders who are introverts.
Bola Afolayan, PsyD (Antioch 2015) was chosen to serve as a fellow on the Endowment for Health’s board. While a student at Antioch, Bola was very involved with SERD (Support Group for Ethnic and Racial Diversity) and participated in a service trip to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, an experience that was life-changing.

Lorraine Mangione had the honor of presenting on her research on Italian American daughters and dads at the Italian American Museum in Little Italy in New York City, just blocks away from where her own Italian American dad grew up. A few of the women who were participants in the research and are featured in the book Lorraine co-wrote with Dr. Donna DiCello (Antioch 1996), Daughters, Dads, and the Path through Grief: Tales from Italian America, joined in the presentation. It was quite a night of conversation and discussion!
Mentoring relationships have always been at the heart of Antioch New England’s PsyD program, and more recently, have evolved into a research interest for some of our faculty. A study conducted by professors Lorraine Mangione and Kathi Borden, with recent graduate (now adjunct faculty member!) Kate Evarts and colleagues from the University of Denver, leads off a special mentoring section of the journal Training and Education in Professional Psychology this month. Titled, Mentoring in clinical psychology programs: Broadening and deepening, the article reports the results of a survey of 290 current and former students from a wide array of doctoral training models, exploring their experience of mentoring and what they value most about it. Perhaps not surprisingly, mentoring – and the relational competencies it entails – emerge as a “common factor” in the professional trajectory of students across the spectrum of program and student characteristics. Respondents value both pragmatic and emotional support functions of mentoring, with graduates indicating the persistence of these influences beyond graduation. Asked specifically to address the role of cultural similarity or difference in the mentor-mentee dyad, respondents were able to describe advantages accruing from all combinations, provided that cultural identity was an available topic for discussion.
Please direct requests for copies of the article to Lorraine Mangione, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Martha Straus presented on Love and Attachment in Psychotherapy and Supervision at this year’s Field Supervisors Day, which was held on February 9. In addition to teaching at Antioch, Dr. Straus maintains a private practice in Brattleboro, Vermont, and consults internationally to schools, hospitals, community mental health centers, and social service agencies on child, adolescent, and family development, attachment, trauma, and therapy. She is the author of numerous articles and five books including, most recently, Treating trauma in adolescents: Development, attachment, and the therapeutic relationship.
Field Supervisors Day, offered to practicum field site supervisors and Clinical Psychology faculty and students, also included a mid-year traineeship review. The Massachusetts Psychological Association (MPA), a co-sponsor with Antioch University New England, is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. MPA maintains responsibility for this program and its content. Participants were able to receive three hours of CE credit for the completion of this workshop.
AUNE’s Center for Behavioral Health Innovation (BHI) has been retained by the NH Department of Health and Human Services to prepare the next 10-year plan for addressing the behavioral health needs of NH’s citizens. Led by Clinical Psychology faculty Jim Fauth (Director) and George Tremblay (Co-Director), BHI will review relevant data, meet with stakeholders around the State, facilitate workgroups to devise recommendations, and prepare a report designed to guide DHHS strategy for the coming decade. To enhance the utility of the report for decision makers, BHI is recruiting a health economist to estimate financial implications of various plan elements, and propose potential payment models. Finally, the report will anticipate implementation challenges and strategies to address them.
For a little more about the project, see this story that ran recently in the Keene Sentinel.

Clinical Psychology faculty members Kathi Borden, PhD and Lorraine Mangione, PhD will be presenting at the annual National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP) conference this month in CA. The theme of this year’s conference is Diversity Actualization: Manifesting Diversity in Programs, Policies, and Practices for Community Well-being.
Parents Come Out Too: An Exploration of the Experience of Having a Child Come Out As Sexually or Gender Diverse
Kathi A. Borden, Ph.D., Antioch University New England
Dana N. Vitrano.,Psy.D. student, Antioch University New England
Nirmala Jayaraman, Psy.D. student, Antioch University New England
As public acceptance of diverse gender and sexual identities has increased, children and adolescents are coming out at earlier ages. While most parents are supportive of their children (Savin-Williams & Ream, 2003), reactions range considerably, with many feeling challenged to incorporate this new information. Yet youth who report family rejection following their disclosure are more likely to be depressed, attempt suicide, and engage in risky behaviors than youth who report acceptance (Ryan, Huebner, Diaz, & Sanchez, 2009). At times, the media and professionals speak disparagingly about unaccepting parents, empathizing primarily with the gender nonconforming youth. However, parents must also adjust to new information about their child’s identity, and must make decisions about sharing this information with others considering factors such as not “outing” the child; the child’s safety; and the family’s social network, culture, and milieu. This presentation includes an overview of our preliminary findings of interviews about the thoughts, feelings, and experiences of parents of gender nonconforming youth. This overview is followed by a roundtable discussion of the participants’ related personal and professional experiences.
Getting Published from Start to Finish

This invited presentation will provide attendees with an overview of the manuscript submission, review, and publication process, as well as the roles of personnel involved in publication of APA journals and books. This will be followed by three sets of suggestions. First, we will provide helpful hints for authors and potential authors who want to turn their ideas into publications. Second, we will provide suggestions for organizations in general, and NCSPP in particular, to disseminate ideas through publication and other means. Finally, we will provide information on how attendees can get involved in the review and editorial process. All three authors of this presentation have prior editorial experience to share.
Learning About Diversity, the Disenfranchised, Social Justice, and Resilience: Can Bruce Springsteen’s Work Enhance Psychology Training?
Lorraine Mangione, Ph.D., Antioch University New England
Lorraine is a long-time fan of and writer about Bruce Springsteen’s work and its intersect with psychology, and sees the possibilities inherent in using his music to help students and faculty become more aware of some of their own feelings and thoughts around marginalized groups and themselves. In turn the participants in this workshop can bring Springsteen’s music and other artists’ creative works back to their students and training programs. This type of personal and interpersonal awareness and understanding is foundational to our clinical practice, education and training, advocacy efforts, and research.

PsyD student, Katie Gorman, presented a poster at the annual Massachusetts Psychologist Association‘s annual conference (ON EDGE: Managing Stress in Our Clients, Communities, and Ourselves), held on November 4. The title of her poster was “Cognitive Screening in Public Inpatient Psychiatry: MoCA Criterion Validity.” Anthony Giuliano, PhD from the Worcester Recovery Center and Hospital was the co-author. This is work that Katie did while on practicum at this state-of-the-art inpatient facility.
The Saratoga Palio was established to honor the inspiring life of Melanie Merola O’Donnell. Melanie was a promising young graduate student in her second year in the AUNE Department of Clinical Psychology who died in a car accident in the Albany area and left her class and the Department with a huge void. One of her best friends started this race the same year of Melanie’s death, and the race and the Foundation, which helps to support students in the mental health world, have been going strong ever since. The Department honors our ties to Melanie by being a sponsor of this event.
This year, third year student Sarajane Rodgers, participated in the race. Her thoughts here:
“On September 17, I was able to participate in my second Saratoga Palio, this time as one of the scholarship recipients. The night before the race, I had the opportunity to eat dinner with the board members, Melanie’s family, and two of the other scholarship winners. Everyone was so nice and I enjoyed getting to see the family of one of our most talked about students again. I had been training to run the half marathon again but because of a broken elbow, that wasn’t possible this year. Instead, I walked the 5k with my mom, who was so kind enough to drive me all the way out to Saratoga when I was only able to use the one arm. As the Saratoga Palio is a very family and community-centered event, it was really sweet to get to share that with one of my own family members.”
Sarajane was also awarded a Donald D. Davis Scholarship for Social Responsibility for the 2017-18 academic year. This endowed fund was established with a gift from the estate of Donald D. Davis, a long time friend of Antioch University New England and former member of the AUNE Board of Visitors. Don was a philanthropist who spent his life giving back to the communities he cared about. The endowment funds a scholarship awarded each year to a student or students with financial need who are involved in service to the community.
AUNE Professor Martha Straus’ most recent book, Treating Trauma in Adolescents: Development, Attachment, and the Therapeutic Relationship, was published in January 2017 (Guilford). This book presents an innovative and empathic approach to working with traumatized teens. It offers strategies for getting through to high-risk adolescents and for building a strong attachment relationship that can help get development back on track. Straus draws on extensive clinical experience as well as cutting-edge research on attachment, developmental trauma, and interpersonal neurobiology. Vivid case material shows how to engage challenging or reluctant clients, implement interventions that foster regulation and an integrated sense of identity, and tap into both the teen’s and the therapist’s moment-to-moment emotional experience.
Given her expertise in the areas of adolescence and trauma, Dr. Straus recently testified before the Vermont State Legislature about the long-term consequences of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). This fall she will be offering workshops in Portland, Maine and Toronto, Canada in which she will be teaching Developmental-Relational Therapy (DRT). This is the model of treatment she discusses in her most recent book
Her current research project is a workbook (being developed with 2nd-year student, Brooklyn Alvarez) filled with activities designed to foster co-regulation between traumatized youth and their caregivers. They have two publishers interested in this endeavor and will send out the proposal in a couple months!
We are delighted that Dr. Straus will be our speaker at the Department’s annual Field Supervisors Day in February and will speak on Love and Attachment in Psychotherapy and Supervision.
The annual New England Psychological Association Conference (NEPA) took place on Saturday, October 21st, and Professors Lorraine Mangione and Kathi Borden, and fifth-year students Jessica Baroni, Leah Levy, and Anna Potter presented on “Mentoring in Students’ Own Words: How it Happens and Why it is Important.” This work was based on a national survey conducted by Drs. Mangione and Borden, Dr. Kate Evarts, (Psy. D. 2017), and two colleagues from the University of Denver, which will appear in an article in an upcoming issue of Training and Education in Professional Psychology.
For NEPA, they presented and discussed some of the research, and the program was greatly enhanced and brought to life by Jessica, Leah, and Anna speaking eloquently and deeply about their own experiences with mentoring across the research, teaching, and supervision spectrum during graduate school. Mentoring remains a critical component of doctoral education in clinical psychology, and opportunities for such relationships are an integral part of doctoral training at Antioch.
We are excited to announce that Kathi A. Borden, Professor of Clinical Psychology, has been selected as the next Editor of the journal, Professional Psychology: Research and Practice. Her six-year term begins with her serving as Incoming Editor beginning on January 1st.
The bimonthly journal is a publication of the American Psychological Association and focuses on empirical and theoretical work with valuable implications for practitioners. Kathi hopes you will send your manuscripts to PPRP for consideration, and that psychologists interested in reviewing for the journal will express their interest by contacting her at email@example.com.
The Center for Behavioral Health Innovation (BHI) works shoulder to shoulder with community partners to improve behavioral health practice and outcomes. BHI recently received several contracts to evaluate and improve the following New Hampshire-based projects:

Professor Lorraine Mangione has co-authored a chapter, Who is Springsteen to his women fans?, in Bruce Springsteen and Popular Music – Rhetoric, Social Consciousness, and Contemporary Culture, edited by William I. Wolff and published by Routledge, 2017. This is a chapter on which Lorraine collaborated with Dr. Donna Luff, a sociologist from Children’s Hospital in Boston.
Kate Evarts, Assistant Director of Antioch’s Psychological Services Center (Psy.D., 2017, from Antioch), helped tremendously with data collection as a Research Assistant. The article highlights issues around gender, and focuses on the depth of the attachment of Springsteen fans to him and his work. It also looks at the importance of his work in their evolving lives, identity, connections, meaning-making, and sense of self. And of course fans also just have a great time at his concerts!
Lorraine was also interviewed for her work on creativity more generally, which includes clinical as well as research applications and areas, as part of a larger article on creativity in the summer issue of New England Psychologist.
