Professional Bio

Dalal Alhomaizi, MA, MS, MPhil is a clinical fellow at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital (HMS/MGH), where she is currently completing her predoctoral internship in Clinical Psychology. Dalal is affiliated with the Psychological Evaluation and Research Laboratory (PEaRL) at MGH where she is receiving training in conducting comprehensive outpatient assessments for diagnostically complex patients as well as contributing to its rigorous research program. She is a doctoral candidate in Clinical Psychology at Teachers College (TC), Columbia University. In 2014, Dalal secured a competitive scholarship from Kuwait University (KU) and the Ministry of Higher Education in Kuwait, to pursue graduate studies in Clinical Psychology, with subspecialty in statistics and psychometrics. Upon completing her graduate studies, Dalal will assume an assistant professorship at KU and be one of only a handful of Kuwaitis with a PhD in Clinical Psychology in the country. In preparation for this role, Dalal has led the psychometric arm of multiple studies at the Global Mental Health lab (GMH-lab) at TC where she was tasked to adapt and validate psychological scales to monitor and evaluate treatment outcomes for psychotherapy research studies in low-resource communities locally and globally. Dalal’s research interests include exploring help-seeking behavior and stigma to examine what impacts service utilization; investigating cross-cultural manifestations of mental illness; scaling-up mental health infrastructure through innovative techniques, such as task-shifting and training-of-the-trainers’ models; and enhancing the cultural-fit of common psychological and personality instruments through adaptation and validation. Her clinical interests include providing theoretically integrative and culturally responsive treatment to diagnostically and socioeconomically diverse patients.
