Elizabeth A. Gosch, PhD, ABPP, Professor, Director of MS Program in Mental Health Counseling

 

 

Dr. Elizabeth Gosch is Director of the MS Program in Mental Health Counseling and a core faculty member of the PsyD program in Clinical Psychology.  A licensed clinical psychologist, she is board certified by the American Board of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology and serves as a diplomate examiner for this board.  Dr. Gosch received her BA in 1987 from Grinnell College and her doctorate in clinical psychology in 1997 from Temple University. She employs an interactive teaching style, seeking to incorporate discussions of theoretical issues with real-world experience to help students master course material.  She has taught doctoral courses in Behavior Therapy, Learning Theories, Practicum, and Child & Adolescent Therapy, among others.

Dr. Gosch is a nationally recognized expert on clinical child psychology, anxiety disorders, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with youth.  She has published on several topics but is best known for co-editing Anxiety Disorders:  A Practioner’s Guide to Comparative Treatments and articles on the treatment of internalizing disorders in children.  Dr. Gosch is currently on the editorial board of Clinical Psychology: Science and Practice.  She serves as a reviewer for the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, and the Behavior Therapist.  She has served on the Publications Committee of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.  She was a co-principal investigator of an NIMH-funded study (NIMH-64484-01A1) of therapeutic process and alliance in the treatment of children with anxiety disorders. 

Her major research interest concerns the process and effectiveness of psychotherapy with differing populations. Much of her work has focused on the treatment of anxiety and depression in youth. She has conducted NIMH-funded psychotherapy outcome research at the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Psychotherapy Research, the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and the Child and Adolescent Anxiety Disorders Clinic at Temple University. Her past work at the Behavioral Therapy Service of the Institute of Pennsylvania Hospital and the Princeton Child Development Institute has also provided her with extensive experience in the field of cognitive-behavioral assessment and treatment.

Although she has received certification in cognitive behavioral therapy with youth from Temple University, she has also received training in family and psychodynamic approaches.  She believes that therapeutic change in youth must be understood from a developmental perspective and strives to integrate findings from the field of developmental psychology into her clinical work.  In her private practice, she works with youth experiencing both externalizing and internalizing symptoms but specializes in the treatment of anxiety and depression.
