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. Dr. Davidson is a Steering Committee member of the Global Collaboration on Traumatic Stress as part of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS). At MUSC, Dr. Davidson is Director of SC Safe Seniors, a South Caroline Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Program funded program designed to provide free mental health treatment to older adults who are experiencing negative mental health effects of abuse and train health care professionals on how to identify and refer potential victims. Dr. Davidson also serves as Director of the Center for Firefighter Behavioral Health (CFFBH) which since 2011 has sought to improve firefighter behavioral health through the development and dissemination of technology- based resources for firefighters, their families, and the providers treating them. She is also Co-Director of the Trauma Resilience and Recovery Program (TRRP), a multidisciplinary clinical service designed to address the mental health needs of traumatic injury patients. Dr. Davidson’s research has focused on addressing mental health care disparities by maximizing reach and receipt of evidence-based behavioral interventions and treatments among traumatic stress and other vulnerable populations through the development, evaluation, and dissemination of innovative, technology-based resources and clinical models of care. Dr. Davidson has acted as principal investigator and co-investigator on 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.
