Professor of Psychology
Ph.D., University of Michigan, 1975
Dr. Harder is currently studying experiences of spirituality as well as
the assessment of shame, guilt, and narcissism and how these traits
relate to symptomatology and other aspects of personality functioning.
Courses taught include: Abnormal Psychology; Graduate-Level Abnormal
Psychology; Seminar in Clinical Psychology (emphasizes different schools
of psychotherapy); Supervisory Seminar in Field Work (for undergraduate
psychology/clinical majors); Research Methods in Clinical Psychology;
Theories of Personality.
Dr. Harder co-administers a special Psychology Department major in
"Psychology/Clinical", which gives undergraduates a thorough grounding
in the academic and clinical sides of psychology. A capstone experience
in this major is a year-long internship of 12 - 16 hours work per week
in an actual clinical agency. This field work experience includes
regular on-site supervision and a campus supervisory seminar once a
week. Introductory psychology, basic statistics, clinical research
design, and clinical interviewing courses are required. Optional courses
that focus on family therapy, behavior therapy, and psychoanalysis are
also available. Apparently, this is the only undergraduate major of this
sort in the entire country.
