Tatiana M. Davidson, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Nursing and Psychiatry at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and a Licensed Clinical Psychologist. She is Director of the Elder Abuse Training and Treatment Program (EATTP), Co-Director of the Trauma Resilience and Recovery Program (TRRP), and Co-Director of the Center for Firefighter Behavioral Health (CFFBH) at MUSC. Dr. Davidson’s research has focused mainly on maximizing the reach and receipt of evidence-based mental health treatments among trauma-affected youth and their families through the development, evaluation, and dissemination of innovative, technology-based resources. Dr. Davidson has led and co-led numerous well-designed federally-, state-, and foundation-funded (i.e., National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, Veterans Affairs Health Services Research and Development, Duke Endowment Foundation, Victims of Crime Program) studies focused on the development, randomized controlled evaluation, and dissemination of technology-based interventions for addressing health and mental health problems among traditional underserved and vulnerable populations. A second major research focus is on addressing mental health care disparities among racial/ethnic minority populations through the development and evaluation of culturally-modified, evidence-based interventions.  She has been awarded both external and internal grants to examine how cultural variables can influence formal mental health treatment seeking, access and completion among Latinx populations, and to adapt evidence-based resources to mobile health delivery formats to reduce traditional barriers to mental health treatment among Latinx youth and families.
