Brannen Hall 2030

Dr. C. Thresa Yancey received her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Alabama and her Master of Art and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Nebraska. Dr. Yancey’s research interests include outcomes following sexual abuse (including resiliency), and the effect of labels (i.e., stigma related to abuse history, gender/sexual orientation minority, substance use history, mental illness) on perceptions of the individual with that label. Her clinical interests include child maltreatment, behavioral interventions for childhood and pediatric problems, and child psychopathology. Dr. Yancey has worked with clinical populations in rural and urban areas, with families with a history of maltreatment, in medical settings, and in university populations. Her approach is generally cognitive behavioral and employs the use of empirically supported treatments when applicable.
