Jill D. Paquin, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the graduate programs of counseling psychology at Chatham University. She completed her doctoral degree in counseling psychology at the University of Maryland, College Park. While at the University of Maryland, she completed clinical training at Maryland’s college counseling center, Greenbelt CARES community center, a state women's prison, and the Baltimore VA Medical Center. She completed internship at the Cleveland VA Medical Center where she worked with men and women veterans recovering from PTSD, addiction, mood disorders, and severe mental illness. After completing her degree, she trained with Dr. Christine A. Courtois as a postdoctoral associate in private practice working with clients on the PTSD spectrum. Dr. Paquin’s main research interests are in the areas of group dynamics, the active ingredients of change across different types of group therapies, group therapy service delivery to marginalized populations, and mentoring as a social justice intervention. Dr. Paquin has presented her research at the conference of the American Psychological Association every year since 2008. At present, Jill teaches the Psychology of Organizations, Consultation, and Communities, Group Dynamics and Group Psychotherapy, Psychology of Culture and Identity, Supervision of Internship I and Practicum, Theories and Techniques of Counseling, and Assessment. In addition to her academic work, Dr. Paquin works with therapy clients individually and in groups at the University of Pittsburgh’s counseling center, and believes her continued involvement in this domain brings a valuable synergy to both her teaching and scholarly work.
