David Richard is a clinical psychologist and cognitive-behavior therapist who teaches classes in statistics, research design, clinical psychology, and abnormal psychology. His research focuses primarily on assessment issues and methodologies (e.g., psychometrics of intelligence tests, ecological momentary assessment, clinical case conceptualization), the integration of computer technology in psychological assessment, evaluation of multimedia-based instruction, and recovery from trauma. Current student research projects include a 25-year review of factor analytic studies of instruments measuring trauma reactions, the use of handheld computers to assess accuracy in retrospective recall of autobiographical events, and an analysis of how accurately people judge covariation of psychological symptoms with other variables. He recently co-edited a book, Handbook of Exposure Therapies, which was published by Academic Press. In his spare time, he writes fiction for older children and teens.
Richard also maintains a Web site detailing professional interests.
