The Division of Psychology provides cancer-related psychological services (assessment, individual psychotherapy, couples’ therapy) to patients, survivors, and family members. We provide empirically supported treatment for cancer-related depression and anxiety, body image challenges, grief and loss, and adjustment to new diagnosis, recurrence, treatment transitions and end-of-life. We maintain an active psychology training program, including advanced graduate students, interns and postdoctoral fellows. We maintain affiliations with psychology programs at the University at Buffalo and Medaille University.

In addition to clinical and teaching roles, our faculty conduct research in psychosocial oncology, with specific expertise in intervention development, population-specific issues (e.g., AYA, Stem Cell Transplant) and quality of life. We also collaborate across disciplines on projects related to cannabis use and psychosocial determinants of risk. We participate in national meetings and committees.
