About Dr. Jewell

Jeremy D. Jewell is a professor of psychology and program director of the Clinical Child and School Psychology graduate program. He obtained his Ph.D. in psychology with a specialization in school psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Jewell completed a one-year internship with the Nebraska Internship Consortium in Professional Psychology, and was placed at Father Flanagan's Boy's Home (Girls and Boys Town) in Omaha, Nebraska. This internship training was on the home campus treatment facility for children and adolescents, and focused on consultation with schools, foster families, and administration, individual and family therapy, psychoeducational and psychological assessment, and research.

Dr. Jewell has also worked in a number of related fields prior to his appointment at SIUE. Previously, Dr. Jewell was a school psychologist for the Austin Independent School District in Austin, Texas for two years. He has also worked for a number of years as a social worker, child abuse and neglect investigator, and supervisor in a state hospital for persons with cognitive impairment. Much of this previous work has been with ethnic minority populations as well as those in poverty.

Dr. Jewell's previous and current research has focused on three primary areas. The first research area concerns the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of youth diagnosed with Conduct Disorder as well as the broader area of juvenile delinquency. The second research interest is in the effects of the family environment, parenting style, and discipline practices on children's mental health and the development of psychopathology. The third area of research is in the area of drinking and driving risk assessment and prevention. Dr. Jewell is currently involved in several research studies including the use of relaxation skills training as a violence prevention program with youth in juvenile detention and examining the components of 'shock'videos related to drinking and driving in order to improve their effectiveness. Dr. Jewell is also co-author of the Behaviors & Attitudes Drinking & Driving Scale (BADDS) in collaboration with Dr. Hupp, which is being sold internationally for assessing individuals' risk for drinking and driving.

Dr. Jewell teaches courses in adolescent psychology, therapy with youth and families, consultation, and crisis intervention. Dr. Jewell also supervises research projects, serves as an academic advisor, directs thesis research, and assists in program development. Dr. Jewell holds several leadership positions at both the local and state level in an effort to improve mental health service delivery to youth. Dr. Jewell is both a certified school psychologist as well as licensed clinical psychologist in Illinois and is one of a handful of individuals in the state to hold both certifications.
