Psychology professor Kristi Erdal wins Fulbright Fellowship

Kristi Erdal, CC associate professor of psychology and chair of the psychology department, was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to the University of Bergen, Norway, for the 2008 fall semester. Erdal, a neuro-psychologist,  will conduct research on the conceptualization of depression among Norway’s majority and minority populations. The immigration and influx of refugees that has led to great cultural diversity in Norwegian urban areas has prompted questions about mental-health service utilization which Erdal will examine, in part, with a two-phase clinical vignette study. Erdal received her A.B. from Brown University, and her masters and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Arizona State University.
