Dr. Cummings completed her PhD at the University of Delaware in 2010. After completing her predoctoral residency at the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group in Ottawa, Ontario, (Canada), Dr. Cummings joined the faculty in the Department of Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan. Dr. Cummings broadly studies how psychopathology and interpersonal relationships bidirectionally influence one another. She studies this using depression, child trauma, and social anxiety as contextual models. In addition, Dr. Cummings is interested in best practices in clinical supervision and has forthcoming articles in both The Behavior Therapist and Psychotherapy related to this area.
