Dr. Tremblay 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 research and clinical interests began with parenting and couple issues, particularly among high conflict families. Those interests expanded to encompass adaptation to other stressful life circumstances, such as the diminished availability of a parent due to divorce, health problems, or death. Since arriving at Antioch New England, Dr. Tremblay has become increasingly involved in supporting and evaluating the quality of community-based prevention and wellness promotion programs. Through a private consulting group that he helped to launch in 2003 (PEER Associates), and also in partnership with Jim Fauth, Director of Antioch's Center for Research on Psychological Practice (CROPP), Dr. Tremblay helps agencies shape successful funding applications and later demonstrate the impact of their services. This work has frequently included funded opportunities for student collaborators and co-authors.
Dr. Tremblay is a licensed Psychologist in the State of New Hampshire, and a member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT.org), and the NH Psychological Association. His primary theoretical orientations are behavioral and systemic. He supervises doctoral trainees in Antioch's Psychological Services Center (make this a live link to the PSC).
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 recreation, gardening, and building projects continue to occupy much of his time away from Antioch.
