Mark Driscoll graduated from DePaul University in 2002 with a B.S. in psychology. At DePaul, he worked under Dr. Joseph Ferrari examining personality attributes of chronic, dysfunctional procrastinators. Following graduation, he worked under Dr. Leonard Jason at DePaul University’s Center for Community Research on a National Institute of Mental Health-funded study of the effectiveness of tobacco control laws and police enforcement in reducing minors’ tobacco use. He is currently a fifth-year graduate student in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program. His primary research focuses on the roles of cultural adaptation processes and psychosocial stressors in psychopathology development among ethnic minority groups. His current work examines the relationship among acculturation, acculturative stress, intercultural competence, stressful life events, and stress-generation processes in predicting depression longitudinally with Latinos. Additional research interests include the relationship among acculturation and ethnic minority individuals’ explanatory reasons for psychopathology development; and the empirical test of an interpersonal theory of suicidal behavior among returning military veterans. His clinical training emphasizes cognitive-behavioral treatment of mood disorders and personality disorders. In his spare time, he enjoys writing and performing experimental music, drinking far too much coffee, and brewing his own beer.
