Dr. Kaslow is a professor and Vice Chair for Faculty Development in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine, Chief Psychologist at Grady Memorial Hospital, Director of the Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Professional Psychology, and Chair of the Emory Medical Care Foundation Research Committee. Dr. Kaslow holds joint appointments in the Departments of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, as well as in the Rollins School of Public Health. Her area of specialty is Clinical Psychology. Dr. Kaslow chose clinical psychology because she enjoys supporting people who have challenges in their lives. She is dedicated to empowering children and adults alike to cope effectively with these challenges and to lead productive and meaningful lives. She believes that people, particularly those with serious mental illness, who have few material resources, deserve the highest quality mental health care possible. Her work also focuses on individuals who have been traumatized. Dr Kaslow is committed to helping underserved and underprivileged populations receive culturally competent, evidence-based, biopsychosocially-oriented mental health services. Dr. Kaslow is a former APA president.
