BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Stults earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Miami, a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Florida International University, and a PhD in Counseling Psychology from New York University. Prior to beginning at Baruch College, Dr. Stults completed the APA-accredited predoctoral internship at program Montefiore Medical Center / Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is also a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and maintains a part-time independent practice in New York City.

The mission of Dr. Stults's program of research is to improve the lives of sexual and gender minority populations, particularly emerging adult lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) subgroups. His work is comprised of four foci: intimate partner violence (IPV), consensual non-monogamy (CNM), health-risk behaviors, and trauma. At Baruch College, Dr. Stults leads the the Sexual and Gender Minority Health (SGMH) Lab. Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to apply to the SGMH Lab. Research projects slated for the Fall 2018 and Spring/Summer 2019 semesters include: (1) a qualitative study of IPV among young gay and bisexual men in New York City, and (2) a quantitative study of IPV among transgender and gender non-conforming young adults in NYC. Students with previous research experience are encouraged to apply but all applicants will be considered. Student research assistants will be involved in all aspects of study design and implementation, including: assisting with participant recruitment, transcribing and coding qualitative interviews, conducting phone screenings with potential research participants, conducting in-person assessments with participants, and managing study data. Some community-based fieldwork may be required throughout the semester. There are paid and unpaid positions available for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years.
