Brian C. Chu

Ph.D., Temple University

Brian C. Chu, Ph.D., is professor in, and department chair of, the Department of Clinical Psychology in the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP) at Rutgers University. He is also founder and director of the Youth Anxiety and Depression Clinic, a research clinic specializing in evaluating and providing evidence-based care for children and adolescents. He has received the Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation Young Investigator Award to support development of behavioral activation and exposure programs in middle schools.  He has coedited a book, Transdiagnostic Treatments for Children and Adolescents: Principles and Practice (Guilford, 2013), reviewing the science and treatment of universal processes that cut across youth pathology. He is coauthoring a practitioner-oriented book designed to guide clinicians in everyday evidence-based practice: Treatment Plans and Interventions: Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Disorders (Translating Evidence-Based Treatments into Personalized Therapies). He is past editor of Cognitive & Behavioral Practice, the practice-oriented journal of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, and he serves on the editorial board for several scientific journals, including Behavior Therapy, Behaviour Research and Therapy, Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, and Clinical Psychology: Science and Practice, among others. For his sustained, outstanding contributions to the field of behavioral interventions and psychological practice, he has earned Fellow Status for the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies. Dr. Chu's areas of interest include the assessment and treatment of anxiety and depressive disorders in youth, with a special emphasis on the dissemination of evidence-based practice, effectiveness research, and the evaluation of mechanisms of change. He is also interested in utilizing technology (e.g., mobile applications and web-based coaching) to foster the effectiveness of evidence-based treatment delivery and professional training. He has a developing interest in understanding multicultural issues that impact help-seeking behavior and access to mental health services. He is a committed teacher and mentor to undergraduate and graduate trainees learning to appreciate and become competent in evidence-based psychological practice.

Brian mentors students in both the GSAPP and Clinical Ph.D. programs.
