Sherryl Goodman, PhD, is Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychology at Emory University as well as the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine. She is an internationally acclaimed expert in the study of developmental psychopathology and the impact of maternal depression on children, specifically. Dr. Goodman and Dr. Dimidjian met as Beck Institute Scholars in Philadelphia, PA in 2005. While they were introducing themselves to Dr. Beck and the training group, they realized the perfect overlap of their interests in developmental psychopathology, clinical intervention, and perinatal mental health, and they have been collaborating ever since! They completed the Staying Well Study as a two site investigation of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for the prevention of depression during pregnancy. With Dr. Beck and other collaborators in the Mental Health Research Network, they also are conducting the AIM study focused on the treatment of depression during pregnancy.
