Dr. Laura Stull
Dr. Stull is a graduate of Anderson University. She returned to AU with the hope of impacting student’s lives as her AU professors impacted her. Dr. Stull’s tenure at Anderson University, she has taught a variety of psychology courses, including introductory and advanced research courses.
Her research has focused on the stigma of severe mental illness and the detrimental effects of that stigma, including decreased access to mental health care. She is particularly interested in both explicit and implicit stigmatizing attitudes that are held by mental health professionals, clergy, and clergy-in-training. She also has published in the areas of stigma among veterans, fidelity measure development for evidence-based practices, and recovery-oriented services. Her most recent work involves the stigma of mental illness in faith communities.
In addition to her own research, Dr. Stull has assisted students in completing independent undergraduate research projects. The completed work has been presented at professional psychology research conferences and submitted for publication in peer-reviewed academic journals.
Dr. Stull’s clinical training included a specialization in psychiatric rehabilitation and she has a particular interest in working with individuals with schizophrenia. She did a year-long clinical internship at the Minneapolis Veterans Administration (VA) and then did a postdoctorate Interprofessional Fellowship in Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Recovery Oriented Services at the San Diego VA. She is a licensed psychologist in Indiana.
Dr. Stull is married to AU alum Stephen, with whom she has one young son, Simon. In her spare time, she enjoys running (sometimes after her amazingly fast young son), eating ethnic food, and traveling.
Dr. Stull has served at Anderson University since 2012.
