Clinical Psychology, Mental Health Equity, Clinical Decision Making
BioMy name is Ben Isenberg, and I am a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at UCLA. My academic and professional interests center around promoting mental health equity for youth from all backgrounds. My research focuses on more effectively disseminating knowledge gained from research on what treatments work for whom to community clinicians working with children from marginalized communities. Outside of school I love to follow sports and go to as many games as possible. I also hike and play tennis when I can. I am a huge foodie and enjoy exploring new restaurants, cooking, and drinking as much coffee as possible!
