About Dr. Bruce Poulsen
I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Utah and have been practicing psychology since 1997. In addition to being in independent practice, I am the chief psychologist at Primary Children’s Medical Center and also direct our APA-accredited child psychology internship program. In addition to being involved in psychology training, I provide supervision to psychiatry residents in the PCMC pediatric residency program at the University of Utah School of Medicine. I am an adjunct assistant professor in both the School of Medicine and Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Utah. I also recently completed a term (2007-2008) as President of the Utah Psychological Association. After finishing undergraduate and graduate degrees at Brigham Young University, I completed a doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, followed by a clinical internship and postdoctoral residency at Primary Children’s Medical Center. I have been licensed as a psychologist in Utah (#4849539-2501) since 2001. I am a member of the American Psychological Association, APA Division of Psychoanalysis (39), APA Division of Psychotherapy (29), and the Utah Psychological Association. My clinical and research interests include relational psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy integration, mindfulness, attachment theory, and forensic psychology. I also enjoy writing about literature, technology, and culture, and currently write a blog for Psychology Today.
