Dr. Rappaport earned his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at McGill University, completed a pre-doctoral internship in Montréal QC, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Virginia Institute for Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetics in Richmond VA. He anticipates accepting a student in the child clinical graduate psychology program for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 academic years.
Dr. Rappaport’s research uses diverse methodologies to elucidate affective and interpersonal mechanisms in the etiology and development of anxiety and mood disorders from childhood through adulthood. For example, current work leverages ecological momentary assessment; laboratory-based assessment; longitudinal & genetic epidemiology; and novel statistical approaches to examine socioemotional processes (e.g., phasic distress, emotion recognition) as distinct mechanisms in the development, assessment, and treatment of internalizing psychopathology in children, adolescents, and adults.
