Biography

Allison Harvey is a Professor of Clinical Psychology, Clinical Psychologist (License #PSY 22682) and Director of the Golden Bear Sleep and Mood Research Clinic at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Harvey is also an adjunct Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Bergen, Norway. Her clinical training and PhD were completed in Sydney, Australia. Dr. Harvey then moved to the University of Oxford as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychiatry and then became a faculty member in the Department of Experimental Psychology at Oxford. She was also a Fellow of St. Anne’s College. In 2004 she moved to UC Berkeley.

Dr. Harvey’s team aim to develop more effective and efficient treatments for psychiatric and psychological health problems by (a) applying a multi-systems and mechanisms-focused framework in which basic science findings on cognitive, affective, biological, behavioral and developmental contributors are used as sources for deriving novel interventions and (b) intervention research is used to develop hypotheses about and/or confirm mechanisms. We are particularly interested in comorbidity and transdiagnostic approaches.

Our research is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIMH, NICHD, and NIDA). The studies currently in progress are focused on sleep disturbance in teens with depression, in adults with bipolar disorder, and in adults with chronic insomnia that is comorbid with depression and anxiety. Dr. Harvey serves on National and International Committees, such as the Executive Committee of the Academy of Psychological Clincal Science. Dr. Harvey has published over 150 research articles and book chapters and has authored two books. Her research has been acknowledged with various awards, including recognition from the International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies (1998), The American Association for Behavior Therapy (2003), the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research (2005-2006), and NARSAD (2006-2008). Dr. Harvey received an honorary doctorate from the University of Orebro, Sweden ini 2011. Dr. Harvey currently serves on numerous editorial boards and she is the Associate Editor for SLEEP.
