Anne Malaktaris received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from St. Olaf College. She received her master’s degree (Psychology) and Ph.D. (Clinical Psychology) from Binghamton University (SUNY), where her research focused on psychological sequalae of civilian trauma, particularly PTSD, anxiety disorders, and chronic pain. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at UCSD/VASDHS where she focused on the treatment of PTSD and serious mental illness. Dr. Malaktaris is currently a postdoctoral fellow in CESAMH and collaborates on research projects with various investigators, including Drs. Ariel Lang, Sonya Norman, Jill Bormann, Niloofar Afari, Julie Wetherell, and Matthew Herbert.
Dr. Malaktaris’s research and clinical interests include developing, implementing, and improving psychological treatments for recently returning veterans with trauma-related disorders, especially PTSD and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Specifically, Dr. Malaktaris is interested in developing and refining treatments (e.g., compassion training) that are designed to address potential shared mechanisms of PTSD and chronic pain. Finally, Dr. Malaktaris is pursuing research that explores the feasibility and efficacy of complementary and integrative health approaches, including mindfulness, meditation, and yoga.
