Dr. Fauth’s primary interests are improving behavioral and community health practice from the ground up using practice based evidence, external facilitation, and knowledge translation; integrated care and population behavioral health; and psychotherapy process, outcome, and training. He has considerable experience as an external evaluator for large scale, community-based projects, including a statewide evaluation of integrated primary care as financially sustained and delivered to adult diabetic patients in four NH primary care settings and seven Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)-funded behavioral health projects (including statewide system of care and youth suicide prevention projects). Some of Dr. Fauth’s scholarship has appeared in book chapters and journals such as Journal of Counseling Psychology; Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training; and Psychotherapy Research.

Dr. Fauth directs the Center for Research on Psychological Practice (CROPP), which works shoulder to shoulder with stakeholders to evaluate and improve community based behavioral health practice and training students for applied, community-based research and quality improvement roles. CROPP’s evaluation, knowledge translation, and external facilitation work has been supported by over $2M over the last eight years from funders such as SAMHSA, Health Resources and Services Administration, Endowment for Health, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth Hitchcock Keene. These grant awards have been used to fund four to twelve graduate assistantships for Clinical Psychology students, per year.

Dr. Fauth is an active member of the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association, Society for Psychotherapy Research, and American Evaluation Association. He has served as Chair of Research for Division 29 (Psychotherapy) of the American Psychological Association and currently serves on the editorial board for the Journal of Counseling Psychology. He has also twice served as a reviewer of large-scale dissemination and implementation grant applications for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. In New Hampshire, he has been an active member of a state-level commission for the integration of mental and physical health care.

Dr. Fauth’s theoretical orientation is integrative, with prominent interpersonal with humanistic and cognitive components. In his clinical work, he attends closely to his own and his clients’ interactive patterns and emotional reactions, and he has written extensively on the topic of countertransference. He clinical training and work took place primarily in rehabilitation and college counseling center contexts, and he maintained a small private practice in Keene for many years.
