PhD, The New School for Social Research, 2017
BA, Williams College, 2006

Dr. Jordan Bate received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from The New School for Social Research, and a BA in History and Political Science from Williams College. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in clinical psychology at Lenox Hill Hospital. Her research is broadly focused on applying attachment theory to child and parent-child psychotherapy. Beyond demonstrating treatment outcomes, she is interested in understanding the process of psychotherapy and exploring questions about what makes psychotherapy interventions effective, and how to effectively train clinicians and disseminate new treatments. She has specific interests in studying how trauma and adverse childhood experiences impact individuals and families, as well as interventions designed for pregnant and postpartum women and new parents.
