About Dr. Bruce Poulsen
I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Utah and have been practicing psychology since 1997. Besides being in independent practice, I am the chief psychologist at Primary Children’s Hospital and also direct our APA-accredited psychology internship program. Throughout my career, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in outpatient and hospital-based settings. Besides being involved in psychology training, I provide supervision to psychiatry residents and fellows from the University of Utah School of Medicine. I am an adjunct faculty member in both the School of Medicine and Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Utah. Several years ago, I completed a term (2007-2008) as President of the Utah Psychological Association. I have a doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and completed a clinical internship and postdoctoral fellowship at Primary Children’s Hospital. I am a member of the American Psychological Association, International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, Utah Psychological Association, and the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration. My interests include relational psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, family therapy, psychology training, and forensic psychology. I also enjoy writing about the arts, technology, and culture, and currently write a blog for Psychology Today.
