Biography

Dr. Kristen P. Lindgren is a Professor and Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the University of Washington’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. She received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the UW in 2006 and returned to UW as a faculty member in 2010. Her research interests include addictions, posttraumatic stress disorder, sexuality, and relationships. Her work focuses on identifying and retraining implicit (i.e., non-conscious or automatic) cognitive processes that contribute to the development and maintenance of maladaptive behavior and psychopathology. Support for her work has been provided by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the University of Washington’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute. Dr. Lindgren also serves as a consultant for dissemination projects aimed at training community-based mental health workers in Cognitive Processing Therapy in Washington State, Texas, and Iraq.
