Alison A Fedio, PhD, PsyD earned a research doctoral degree in Applied/Experimental Psychology from The Catholic University of America, followed by a clinical doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology, Virginia.
For the past 25 years, Dr. Fedio has been a member of the clinical faculty, initially at the American School of Professional Psychology, where she also served as Associate Dean for 15 years, and more recently at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She has held the academic rank of Full Professor in both programs.
Her teaching and mentoring of clinical neuropsychology students combines her research and clinical background. Prior to entering academia, Dr. Fedio worked as a research psychologist in the Neurology Institute at The National Institutes of Health (NIH), where she studied cognitive and emotional correlates of epilepsy and other neurological disorders.
She has over 100 peer-reviewed presentations and publications in the area of brain-behavior relations and has presented research findings nationally and internationally.
Dr. Fedio continues to supervise doctoral students’ research in clinical neuropsychology and teach classes in neuropsychology, the biological bases of behavior, and cognition and emotions. She and her husband, Paul Fedio, PhD, Clinical Neuropsychologist, have shared a private practice, teaching and research initiatives, and many interesting dinner conversations about neuropsychology over the years.
For the past 25 years, Dr. Fedio has been applying her clinical and research skills in her teaching and mentoring of hundreds of clinical psychology graduate students. Many of her former students are engaged in careers as clinical neuropsychologists.
Dr. Fedio has supervised the doctoral research of over 100 students and currently enjoys collaborating on research projects with former students and colleagues. Her research interests include the neurological bases of memory, language, and emotions; self-awareness and self-concept in individuals with brain injury; and treatment of individuals with neurological disorders.
A current research initiative focuses on developing group therapy programs for individuals with neurological disorders and their families.
