Pamela Lehman earned her Doctorate in Philosophy in Counseling Psychology from The University of Albany, State University of New York (SUNY) in 2007. Her dissertation entitled “Women’s Ways of Knowing Each Other: Class Difference and the Therapeutic Process”; studied how therapists understood and made sense of class difference when working with their female patients. Pamela received the Initiatives for Women Research Award for this project. As part of her graduate training, Pamela completed Psychology Externships at a number of locations, including Williams College and the Dutchess County Department of Mental Hygiene. She completed her both her Psychology Internship and Postdoctoral training with us at Haverford College from 2005-2010. Since then she has been in private practice nearby in Rosemont, PA and has also worked as a psychological consultant to CAPS during busy times of the year. Pam is interested in class difference as they manifest within the therapeutic relationship and on the effects of psychological trauma on the development of the self.
