Dr. Cogswell‘s research focuses on adolescent personality development, with an emphasis on factors that encourage coherence in the developing personality. He also studies factors that impinge on parent-child agreement in reporting a variety of content areas (e.g., parenting behavior, child symptoms) and how disagreement may be predictive of negative child outcomes. Clinically, he works with children and adolescents on an outpatient basis, with the majority of his practice focused on adolescents with anxiety and depressive disorders. Finally, he provides clinical supervision and teaches in both the psychiatry residency and child psychiatry fellowship programs, and is the coordinator of an Advanced Practicum program for psychology graduate students.
