About the Author: Jill M. Hooley is a professor of psychology at Harvard University. She is also the head of the experimental psychopathology and clinical psychology program at Harvard and, in addition, serves as Director of Undergraduate Studies for the Psychology Department. Dr. Hooley was born in England and received a BSc in psychology from the University of Liverpool. This was followed by research work at Cambridge University. She then attended Magdalen College, Oxford, where she completed her DPhil. After a move to the United States and additional training in clinical psychology at SUNY Stony Brook, Dr. Hooley took a position at Harvard, where she has been a faculty member for longer than she can remember. Dr. Hooley has a long-standing interest in psychosocial predictors of psychiatric relapse in patients with severe psychopathology such as schizophrenia and depression. Other research interests center around nonsuicidal self-injury (skin-cutting or burning) as well as emotion regulation -- particularly in people who are vulnerable to depression or who have borderline personality disorder. Her research has been supported by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and by the Borderline Personality Disorder Research Foundation. In 2000, Dr. Hooley received the Aaron T. Beck Award for Excellence in Psychopathology Research. She is also a past president of the Society for Research in Psychopathology. The author of many scholarly publications, Dr. Hooley served as Associate Editor for Clinical Psychological Science from 2012-2016. She also serves on the editorial boards of several journals including the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, the Journal of Family Psychology, Family Process, and Personality Disorders: Theory, Research and Treatment. In 2015, Dr. Hooley received the Zubin Award for Lifetime Achievement in Psychopathology Research from the Society for Research in Psychopathology. At Harvard, Dr. Hooley has taught graduate and undergraduate classes in introductory psychology, abnormal psychology, schizophrenia, mood disorders, clinical psychology, psychiatric diagnosis, and psychological treatment. Reflecting her commitment to the scientist-practitioner model, she also does clinical work specializing in the treatment of people with depression, anxiety disorders, and personality disorders. Matthew K. Nock was born and raised in New Jersey. Matt received his BA from Boston University (1995), followed by two masters (2000, 2001) and a PhD from Yale University (2003). He also completed a clinical internship at Bellevue Hospital and the New York University Child Study Center (2003). Matt joined the faculty of Harvard University in 2003 and has been there ever since, currently serving as a Professor in the Department of Psychology. While an undergraduate, Matt became very interested in the question of why people do things to intentionally harm themselves and he has been conducting research aimed at answering this question ever since. His research is multidisciplinary in nature and uses a range of methodological approaches (e.g., epidemiologic surveys, laboratory-based experiments, and clinic-based studies) to better understand how these behaviors develop, how to predict them, and how to prevent their occurrence. His work is funded by research grants from the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, and several private foundations. Matt's research has been published in over 250 scientific papers and book chapters and has been recognized through the receipt of awards from the American Psychological Association, the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, and the American Association of Suicidology. In 2011 he received a MacArthur Fellowship (aka, "Genius Grant") in recognition of his research on suicide and self-harm. At Harvard, Matt teaches courses on various topics including psychopathology, statistics, research methods, and cultural diversity. He has received numerous teaching and mentoring awards including the Roslyn Abramson Teaching Award and the Petra Shattuck Prize. James N. Butcher was born in West Virginia. He enlisted in the army when he was 17 years old and served in the airborne infantry for three years, including a one-year tour in Korea during the Korean War. After military service, he attended Guilford College, graduating in 1960 with a BA in psychology. He received an MA in experimental psychology in 1962 and a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was awarded Doctor Honoris Causa from the Free University of Brussels, Belgium, in 1990 and an honorary doctorate from the University of Florence, Florence, Italy, in 2005. He is currently professor emeritus in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota. He was associate director and director of the clinical psychology program at the university for 19 years. He was a member of the University of Minnesota Press's MMPI Consultative Committee, which undertook the revision of the MMPI in 1989. He was formerly the editor of Psychological Assessment, a journal of the American Psychological Association, and serves as consulting editor or reviewer for numerous other journals in psychology and psychiatry. Dr. Butcher was actively involved in developing and organizing disaster response programs for dealing with human problems following airline disasters during his career. He organized a model crisis intervention disaster response for the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport and organized and supervised the psychological services offered following two major airline disasters: Northwest Flight 255 in Detroit, Michigan, and Aloha Airlines on Maui. He is a fellow of the Society for Personality Assessment. He has published more than 60 books and more than 250 articles in the fields of abnormal psychology, cross-cultural psychology, and personality assessment.
