Gregory Bartoszek

Professor • Department of Psychology

Dr. Bartoszek is an Assistant Professor at William Paterson University. He received his doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) after completing an APA-accredited internship at the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center. He also completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the Trauma Services Program at the Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital.
Dr. Bartoszek's research combines advances in basic affective science with clinical science. He developed indirect assessment methods to investigate cognitive, psychophysiological, behavioral, and motivational aspects of emotions and affective psychopathology. His research also focuses on comorbidities among mental health problems, particularly depression and anxiety disorders, and mechanisms of change in evidence-based psychotherapies. The ultimate research goals are to inform conceptualization of psychiatric disorders and to improve psychological interventions.
