Karey O’Hara earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Arizona in 2017. She completed a clinical internship at SUNY Upstate Medical University and an NIH-funded T32 postdoctoral fellowship at Arizona State University’s REACH Institute. Her research lies at the intersection of family law, prevention science, and child mental health. In particular, she studies risk and resilience factors associated with children’s adjustment following parental divorce, with an emphasis on informing family court policy and improving interventions to promote the well-being of court-involved families. She has also conducted research in the areas of interparental conflict, intimate partner abuse, and family violence.
