About Joseph Bardeen
Assistant Professor

Dr. Bardeen earned his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Northern Illinois University in 2013. He completed a pre-doctoral clinical internship and a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and a clinical supervisor at the Auburn University Psychological Services Center. Dr. Bardeen's research is broadly focused on information processing and emotion regulation in the development and maintenance of anxiety pathology, with an emphasis on posttraumatic stress disorder. Within this broader context, he is particularly interested in the use of higher-order cognitive abilities, such as executive attention, to alleviate emotional distress. Dr. Bardeen currently serves as Principal Investigator on a grant from the National Institute on Mental Health examining the self-regulatory role of attentional control in the context of trauma and posttraumatic stress.
