- Title: Rocky Mountain MIRECC Psychology Fellow - Denver
- Biography: Dr. Matthew Podlogar completed his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Florida State University in 2018, under the advisement of Dr. Thomas Joiner, Ph.D., and completed his predoctoral internship in general adult practice at Aurora Mental Health Center in Aurora, CO. During his tenure at FSU, Dr. Podlogar contributed to research publications concerning the Interpersonal Theory of Suicide as well as developed theories of murder-suicide and investigated technical and ethical considerations of suicide risk screening. He also served as a Medical Platoon Leader in the Army National Guard Medical Service Corps from 2009-2015. He joined the Rocky Mountain MIRECC as a Postdoctoral Fellow in September 2018.
- Dr. Podlogar’s primary research interests include developing ways to improve screening and outreach of suicide prevention services to populations who are unable, or who do not wish to access mental health services. In particular, he is interested in destigmatizing suicide risk screening and intervention and identifying effective alternatives to hospitalization for managing suicide risk. In his career, he aspires to strengthen working partnerships between efforts in empirical research, clinical practice, and public health to provide humanistic and culturally competent care to all people in suicidal distress.
