Brenda Huber, PhD, ABPP, serves as the Director of the Psychological Services Center at Illinois State University and the Illinois School Psychology Internship Consortium. She is currently funded by the Central Illinois Area Health Education Center and the Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation to train professionals for integrated behavioral health practice in primary care settings and to provide systems consultation to rural communities developing children’s mental health services. In addition to supervising others practicing in schools and primary care, she engages in clinical work informed by developmental, cognitive-behavioral, and systems theories. Her interests include promoting trauma-informed, culturally competent and socially responsible service delivery and exploring avenues by which research and practice can influence public policy.
