Meghan McKenzie

Alumni, Class of 2017

Meghan McKenzie earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from UCLA in 2017. Her research examines the heterogeneity present among child conduct problems and psychopathic traits and investigates how their underlying components (e.g., callous-unemotional traits, narcissism) may be differentially associated with various negative outcomes (e.g., internalizing and externalizing psychopathology) across childhood and adolescence. In her clinical work, Dr. McKenzie specializes in the evidence-based treatment of child disruptive behavior disorders. She is currently completing a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Westchester Division with a focus on child and adolescent cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies.
