Received his doctorate in clinical psychology from the University at Albany (SUNY) in 1996, following completion of a pre-doctoral internship at the University of Mississippi and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers in Jackson, Mississippi.
Dr. Tremblay’s longstanding research and clinical interests revolve around parenting and couples issues, child maltreatment, and prevention and wellness promotion. He has published in all of these areas, often with student co-authors. He has a particular interest in interventions that target families experiencing life circumstances (e.g., parental divorce or death, health problems, substance abuse) that place them at risk for problematic developmental trajectories. Dr. Tremblay’s primary theoretical orientations are behavioral and systemic.
Since arriving at Antioch New England, Dr. Tremblay has become increasingly involved in program evaluation, a niche well-suited to doctoral-level psychologists who are interested in applying their methodological skills to the improvement of community services. Through a private consulting group that he helped to establish in 2003 (PEER Associates), and also in collaboration with Antioch’s Center for Research on Psychological Practice (CROPP), Dr. Tremblay frequently consults in the evaluation of school- and community-based wellness promotion programs; this work has always included funded opportunities for student collaborators.
Dr. Tremblay is an active member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, the Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology, and Divisions 12 (Clinical Psychology) and 53 (Clinical Child) of the APA. He is a licensed psychologist in New Hampshire.
For three years prior to joining the Antioch New England faculty in 1999, Dr. Tremblay coordinated a federally funded clinical trial of an intervention for families at risk for child maltreatment (Lizette Peterson, Principal Investigator), at the University of Missouri-Columbia. In a former life, he operated a furniture restoration business in Vermont for over a decade. His interests in outdoor pursuits and building projects continue to occupy much of his time away from Antioch University New England.
