John E. Lochman received his PhD from the University of Connecticut. Dr. Lochman is the Doddridge Saxon Chair of Clinical Psychology at The University of Alabama. He has primary research interests in examining the short- and long-term effects of prevention programs provided to high-risk aggressive children, and treatment programs for youth with externalizing disorders. These school- and community-based programs (Anger Coping Program; Coping Power Program; Fast Track Program) use cognitive-behavioral, social problem solving and social-skill training approaches with children, and behavioral parent training with parents. Ongoing grant-funded multi-site prevention research projects are examining the components of interventions, the additive effects of universal and indicated (targeted) interventions, and comprehensive interventions designed to prevent conduct disorder, substance use, and delinquency. Dr. Lochman’s graduate teaching responsibilities include child psychotherapy and basic practicum supervision. Dr. Lochman serves on grant review committees at NIMH and at several private foundations.  He is the editor of the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, is an associate editor for Behavior Therapy, and is on the editorial board for the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology.
