STAN HUEY, PHD
Dr. Stan Huey is an Associate Professor of Psychology and American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California (USC), with a joint appointment in American Studies and Ethnicity. He received his B.A. in Anthropology and Psychology from UC Berkeley in 1990 and his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from UCLA in 1998, and joined the USC faculty in 2000.
His research focuses on reducing disparities in behavioral health by optimizing treatments for high-risk populations, particularly under-resourced ethnic minority youth. He and his students use randomized trials, longitudinal methods, and meta-analysis to address important questions about treatment effects and mechanisms with (1) externalizing youth, (2) youth and adults in criminal justice settings, and (3) ethnic minorities with mental health problems.
In recent years, his work has focused on developing and testing brief interventions for ethnic minorities with diverse psychosocial problems; some studies assess the relative benefits of culturally tailored vs “generic” intervention strategies, and others utilize brief strategies to improve treatment engagement.
