The Spotlight on a Mentor program highlights accomplished mentors within ABCT's membership ranks. This article presents an interview with Dr. Gregory Stuart, our current spotlighted mentor.
Dr. Stuart received his bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan and his doctorate in clinical psychology from Indiana University.
He completed his internship at the Brown University Clinical Psychology Training Consortium and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Brown University Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies.
He is currently Arts and Sciences Excellence Professor and Sally and Alvin Beaman Professor at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
He is an adjunct professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University, and he is the Director of Family Violence Research at Butler Hospital.
His work includes over 300 publications (most of which are coauthored with students) and approximately 40 collaborative grants. Dr. Stuart's program of research has a particular emphasis on the role of substance misuse in intimate partner violence perpetration and victimization.
ABCT is seeking a Web editor to assist in updating material in, and developing policies for, its Web site. The position is funded with an honorarium.
The role principally involves helping to develop content for the Web site and reviewing the site and navigational structure to ensure it remains best suited to our audiences.
Technological knowledge is less essential, and the web editor is not expected to post to the site or otherwise take on the function of a web master.
The web editor is expected to help facilitate content making the web relevant to professionals and lay people alike.
Sometimes it's easier to call in air strikes than it is to call for help with the nightmares and the anxiety. It shouldn't be that way.

Now, therapists are trained to address the many complicated symptoms that can afflict soldiers with PTSD.
ABCT has compiled quite a few fact sheets related to the focus for this month - Veterans' Issues/ PTSD.
For a list of treatment providers who work with veterans or PTSD, check out ABCT's Find-A-Therapist page here:
