Paige H. Fisher, Ph.D.

Associate Professor

Department of Psychology


I conduct research on mental health & college adjustment, as well as preschool social & academic development.

I am a clinical psychologist who joined the Department of Psychology at Seton Hall University in 2008. Prior to that, I was an Associate Research Scientist at the NYU Child Study Center, investigating childhood anxiety disorders. I primarily teach clinically-oriented courses at Seton Hall (Abnormal Psychology, Psychological Testing, etc.) and Introductory Psychology, and I coordinate the department's internship program.

My research focuses on two areas: 1) how mental health (specifically anxiety and depression) impacts college adjustment, and 2) the relationship between academic and behavior problems in preschool children. I have written several articles investigating the outcomes of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for anxiety disorders, as well as papers on the impact of academic and behavior disorders on preschool development.
