Dr. Maggi Price is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, where she is the Project Co-Director of the CARES (Counseling for Academic Resilience in Every Student) Project. Dr. Price earned her undergraduate degree in psychology and sociology from the University of Oregon, her master’s degree in counseling psychology from the University of Hawaii, Hilo and her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Boston College. Dr. Price completed her clinical practica training through Harvard Medical School at Cambridge Health Alliance and Massachusetts General Hospital. She subsequently completed her clinical internship at Yale University School of Medicine. Across these settings, she trained in evidence-based practices (EBP) for children, adolescents, and young adults with an emphasis on trauma-related psychopathology. Dr. Price has received extensive training in culturally responsive care and has completed specialized training in youth-focused EBP including Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for Adolescents, and the Modular Approach to Therapy for Children with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, or Conduct Problems (MATCH-ADTC).
Dr. Price’s major areas of research include 1) the study of trauma-related outcomes in youth, and the 2) intersection of trauma and identity. Her early graduate work focused on trauma-related psychopathology and treatment, with emphases on abuse and neglect. Dr. Price’s recent work examines the effects of identity-based victimization, including discrimination and identity-based bullying (i.e., stigma-based bullying, bias-based bullying) on youth mental health. Additionally, she is involved in scholarly and policy projects focused on improving care for gender variant people. Dr. Price is interested in culturally-responsive adaptations of EBP that address stigma-related concerns for diverse and intersectional youth.
