Professor Barry A. Farber received his Ph.D. from Yale University. Clinically, he has had training in behavioral, client-centered, and psychodynamically oriented psychotherapies. His research and scholarly interests are in the areas of psychotherapy process and outcome (e.g., the ways in which patients construct internal representations of the therapist and the therapeutic relationship; self-disclosure in patients, therapists, and supervisees; the nature and consequences of the therapist's provision of positive regard), the impact on the therapist of doing psychotherapy, the development of psychological-mindedness, and the ways in which interpersonal disclosure is influenced by emerging technologies (e.g., texting, emailing, blogging). He was Director of Training in the clinical program here for 21 years (1990-2011) and recently (2014) re-assumed that positon; he's currently the editor of Journal of Clinical Psychology: In Session. He's also on the Executive Committee of Division 29 (Psychotherapy) of the American Psychological Association.
