Expert: Nadine Kaslow
Kaslow is frequently called on by local and national media outlets to comment on a broad array of mental health topics relevant to children, women, and families, including coping during times of tragedy.
Kaslow has over 300 publications on the assessment and treatment of family violence (intimate partner violence, child maltreatment), assessment and treatment of depression and suicide in youth and adults, couples and family therapy, women’s mental health, pediatric psychology and a competency-based approach to psychology education and supervision.
Her research includes grants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institute of Mental Health to engage African American survivors of intimate partner violence who are experiencing suicidal behavior to participate in a counseling program called Nia. Kaslow and her team developed and continuously enhanced the program by working closely with the women who participated to ensure all of their needs were met.
Kaslow has a grant from the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention to develop a strategy to help families cope with the loss of a loved one to suicide, and a grant from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration to create and disseminate a campus-wide suicide prevention program. She is responsible for leading a group of young researchers in developing a cell phone app called ReliefLink as a suicide prevention tool.
Additionally, Kaslow remains passionately involved in ballet, and serves as the psychologist for the Atlanta Ballet Company.
