Membership Committee Biographies

Dr. Madeline Brodt (she/her) is an Assistant Professor at Oklahoma State University. She received her MS and Ph.D. from University of Massachusetts Boston. She has been passionate about protecting and advancing the rights of marginalized people for her whole life. As such, she has been involved in activism and advocacy at a young age and infuses this passion into her professional work. She describes herself as a radical (relational, epistemologically humble, Queer) human who uses her skill sets to create and support a world where we are all free.

As a question-based researcher, her research responds to the question(s) at hand, rather than within the traditional qualitative or quantitative binary. Her research is focused on three main areas: trauma and culture, disability, and transforming psychology training to be more socially just. Social justice is at the center of these three overlapping circles as it undergirds all of Madeline’s work.

As a clinician, she uses Rogerian and feminist approaches and incorporates CBT techniques as needed. She has developed clinical expertise in trauma, diverse populations, and group therapy. Her teaching and pedagogy interests include liberatory education, ethics, and multicultural counseling. 

She has held several different leadership positions as a graduate student, including an APAGS ACT committee member. Currently, she is a member of the SCP ECP committee and Membership Co-Chair. Outside of work, she loves hanging out with her two corgis and partner, Bob. She also enjoys creating pottery, drag, reading, and baking. Visit to learn more about Dr. Madeline Brodt.
