Klaus E. Cavalhieri, Ph.D. [he/him] (Southern Illinois University, Carbondale), Assistant Professor. Doctoral Co-Training Director. Training: Multicultural psychology; counseling theories and skill-building; clinical supervision. Research: Social class and classism; Race and racism; Violence against women. Clinical: Eating disorders and body image issues; mood and anxiety disorders; grief; humanistic therapies (e.g., EFT, Gestalt-therapy, person-centered).
Dr. Cavalhieri's research focuses broadly on multicultural issues in psychology. His research mainly focuses on (a) social class and classism, (b) race and racism, and (c) violence against women - emphasizing the impact of marginalization and the resilience of oppressed groups. It is his hope that his research is both critical and socially responsible, so it can guide policies and promote social change.
