Biography

Dr. Carla Stover is a licensed clinical psychologist and Associate Professor at the Yale University School of Medicine Child Study Center.  Dr. Stover's research interests are focused on the impact of violence and trauma (particularly family violence) on child development and the advancement of best practice interventions for children and families affected by such violence exposure. Dr. Stover has provided clinical service to families impacted by domestic violence including acute/crisis response, as well as, longer term evidence based treatments like TF-CBT and Child Parent Psychotherapy.  Dr. Stover has been awarded several grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse to develop interventions for fathers with histories of intimate partner violence (IPV) and substance misuse.  She developed Fathers for Change to enable fathers to reduce both their violence and substance use and improve their parenting.  She has conducted trainings both nationally and internationally on engagement and treatment approaches for fathers with IPV and substance misuse.
