Daniel W. M. Maitland, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor at Morehead State University in the Department of Psychology. He is a licensed psychologist in Kentucky and Texas. Dr. Maitland earned his doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Western Michigan University with Dr. Scott T. Gaynor as his advisor. His dissertation work was a randomized controlled trial investigating Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) compared to a watchful waiting control group. Dr. Maitland completed his clinical internship at the University of Wisconsin Psychiatric Institute and Clinics and has previously held appointments as a research associate at the University of Washington and assistant professor at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi. Dr. Maitland’s research focuses on psychotherapy processes and outcomes of therapies anchored in contextual behavioral science, especially FAP. Given that FAP prototypically targets a client’s interpersonal problems, Dr. Maitland’s research interests have recently expanded to include the role of disruptions to interpersonal functioning in domains of mental and physical health, and issues of social importance such as racism.
