About Dr. Bruce Poulsen
I am a licensed psychologist with over 25 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. Prior to going into full-time private practice in downtown Salt Lake City, I served as chief psychologist at Primary Children’s Hospital where I also directed the APA-accredited psychology internship program and postdoctoral fellowship program. I continue to be an adjunct assistant professor in both the Psychiatry and Psychology Departments at the University of Utah. Several years ago, I completed a term (2007-2008) as President of the Utah Psychological Association and since then have continued to work with both state and national organizations to advance the training and profession of psychology. My doctoral degree is from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and I 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, brief psychodynamic therapy, psychoanalysis, family therapy, psychology training, and forensic psychology. In addition to numerous research projects and scholarly publications, I also enjoy writing about the interconnections of psychology, art, and technology for Psychology Today.
