CABHR scientist and associate professor, psychology
Dr. Kanter is associate professor in the department of psychology, director of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Depression Treatment Specialty Clinic, coordinator of the UW-Milwaukee Psychology Clinic, and a scientist with CABHR. He is broadly interested in the psychopathology and treatment of depression, with a focus on behavioral or behavior-analytic models.
