Janice Kuo, PhD
Janice Kuo, Ph.D., received her doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of Washington under the mentorship of Dr. Marsha Linehan. During this time, Dr. Kuo received intense clinical training in DBT, the application of randomized clinical trials, and the conduct of basic experimental methods. Dr. Kuo’s dissertation research examined two components of Linehan’s model of emotion dysregulation in BPD (i.e., baseline emotional intensity and emotional reactivity) using a multi-method experimental approach. Dr. Kuo completed her predoctoral clinical internship at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System and a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University and the National Center for PTSD. There, she received additional training in the examination of basic emotional processes in both non-clinical and clinical samples (e.g., social anxiety disorder, PTSD). Dr. Kuo joined the clinical psychology faculty at Ryerson University where she is currently an Assistant Professor. Dr. Kuo has published numerous empirical and theoretical papers pertaining to basic emotional processes, emotion regulation in BPD and PTSD, and mechanisms of change in DBT.
