Dr. Shafer was born in Columbus, GA and raised in Seattle, WA. After receiving his B.A. in Psychology from Seattle University, he moved to Guam where he provided hospital-based counseling services for approximately a year. After returning to the US, he received his M.A. in applied psychology from the University of Baltimore and conducted research at the University of Maryland Medical School, focusing on the provision of school-based mental health services to children. In 2008, Dr. Shafer received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of North Texas. He participated in several research projects (ultimately published or presented at national conferences); a paper he co-authored on the evaluation of a self-concept instrument was acknowledged with the 2002 APA Alfred B. Newmann Award. While completing his Ph.D., Dr. Shafer developed a strong interest in the field of clinical neuro psychology and brain-behavior relationships. Today, his primary research/clinical interests include the assessment of neuro psychological disorders in children and adults (e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), Alzheimer’s) and the study of localized brain functioning.
