Executive Director: Clark McKown, PhD
Executive Director: Dr. Clark McKown, Ph.D.
A clinical psychologist with a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkley, Dr. McKown currently leads Rush NeuroBehavioral Center and serves as Associate Professor of Behavioral Sciences at Rush University Medical Center.
The five research projects currently underway at RNBC
constitute a program of inquiry focused on the nature, assessment, and treatment of social-emotional learning impairments in childhood.
Says Dr. McKown
, "Friendship, academic success, marriage, good citizenship, life success-virtually everything parents hope for their children is influenced greatly by the child's ability to develop healthy relationships."
The research conducted under Dr. McKown's
direction is designed to understand how friendships work and children's ability to form relationships, assess their social-emotional strengths and weaknesses, and intervene to improve their social development and their chances of building better social relationships.
