Psy.D. Research Group Formalizes Collaboration With Cambridge University
August 21, 2008
Regent University's Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology has established a formal research affiliation agreement with Cambridge University's Psychology and Religion research group. Officially begun in May, the "The Clinical Psychology of Religion Research Project" aims to advance scientific understanding of the psychology of religion. The Project is funded by a Regent Faculty grant and matching funds from Cambridge.
"The common interest to further scientific understanding in psychology of religion was the foundational motivation for establishing the Project and continues to be the driving force of its current mission," says William Hathaway, Program Director of the Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology.
The project was founded by Dr. Nicholas Gibson, of Cambridge University, and Dr. Glen Moriarty and Andrew Yarborough, M.A., of Regent University. Gibson's affiliation with Regent is long-standing; he has served as a reader on Regent Psy.D. dissertations and collaborated on projects with Moriarity. "The arrangement indicates the growing reputation of the Regent doctoral program in clinical psychology as a premier context for psychology of religion scholarship and training," explains Hathaway.
