Dr. Carol R. Glass

Professor, Department of Psychology
Director of Undergraduate Program in Psychology

I grew up in Champaign-Urbana, IL and earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Indiana University.  At CUA, I'm a Professor of Psychology and Director of the Undergraduate Program in Psychology, and teach undergraduate courses in the Psychology of Gender and Cognitive and Behavior Therapy.  While in college, one of my most important role models was actually a professor of Philosophy, who was one of only two women teachers I had in my entire time in college and graduate school.  Another important mentor was Dr. John Gottman, who directed my masters thesis; I still remember him telling me that if the lack of women faculty bothered me I should do something about it by applying for academic positions myself after I got my doctoral degree!
My research interests include cognitive-behavioral therapy and assessment, shyness and social anxiety, cognitive factors in anxiety, mindfulness, psychotherapy integration and psychotherapy research, and sport psychology.  I've published over 95 articles and chapters and an edited book, and serve on the editorial board of the Journal of Psychotherapy Integration.  I'm also a member of the Steering Committee of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration, a Founding Fellow of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, and was elected a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (Society of Clinical Psychology).  I live in Bethesda, MD with my husband Bill and two Siamese cats, and have two children who currently attend college out of state.  In my free time, I enjoy reading science fiction, watching movies and sports, listening to many kinds of music, having dinner with friends, and travelling.
