Dr. Rodriguez-Seijas’s research interests lie in (1) understanding the nature of psychopathology and (2) investigating the ways in which stigma, discrimination, and marginalization impact the manifestation, assessment, conceptualization, and treatment of psychopathology.
Dr. Rodriguez-Seijas typically explores transdiagnostic models of psychopathology, consistent with the aims of the Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology (HiTOP) Consortium’s efforts. In addition, he is committed to the dissemination of evidence-based intervention approaches for working with sexual and gender minority patients.
