    Dr. Tracy Prout has joined the Combined School-Clinical Child Psychology PsyD program as an Assistant Professor. 

    Dr. Tracy Prout has a masters in counseling from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary and earned her doctorate in clinical psychology at Fordham University. She is a graduate of the psychodynamic psychotherapy program at NYU Medical Center's Institute for Psychoanalytic Education. Her research focuses on two major areas – psychodynamic psychotherapy (including evidenced based treatments and psychotherapy process research) and the psychology of religion (specifically the role of religious coping and religiosity in mental health and recovery). Dr. Prout has published peer-reviewed articles on the role of religion and spirituality in the lives of those with mental illness and the role of spirituality in pedagogy. One of her passions is involving students in research and providing them with opportunities to present and publish their work.  Dr. Prout is a licensed psychologist and has a clinical practice in Union Square where she sees children, adolescents, and adults and provides psychological testing, including psychoeducational and personality assessment. She also provides psychological assessments for asylum seekers through her volunteer service with the Human Rights Council. Dr. Prout frequently provides training on psychodynamic psychotherapy techniques and how to integrate spirituality into clinical practice for professionals across disciplines and organizes workshops for religious leaders and lay ministers on how to address and care for congregational mental health needs. Dr. Prout is a former fellow of the American Psychoanalytic Association and completed advanced research training with the International Psychoanalytic Association at the Anna Freud Centre in London and at the Yale University Child Study Center.  Dr. Prout is the recipient of the Dennis J. Enright Award for Excellence in Teaching and grant funding from the Psychoanalysis and the Academy Committee of the American Psychoanalytic Association.
