Cameron C. Brown, Ph.D.

Research Interests

Dr. Brown's research agenda is focused on examining systemic factors at the intersections of mental, physical, and social/relational health experiences. He investigates interdependent processes from these three primary markers of health in efforts to build bridges of understanding and collaboration across disciplines of helping professionals, mainly medical professionals and psychosocial professionals such as couple, marriage, and family therapists (CMFT). In each of these scholarly pursuits, he strives to incorporate at least two of three primary markers of health (mental, physical, and social/relational). To date, these dimensions are evaluated in contexts including personal relationships, households, schools, workplaces, and the medical community.
