Lori Toedter, Ph.D., University of Connecticut, is a licensed psychologist who specializes in clinical, community and health psychology. As a clinical psychologist her professional interests involve factors that affect a person's physical and mental well being. As a result she has focused her research in such areas as pregnancy loss and reactions to major life stressors such as stroke. Recently she has also begun to develop an interest in doing writing and research on the process of teaching challenging concepts to students and professionals. She is currently working on developing a series of workshops to train medical and surgical students to understand research methodology and statistics: topics that are rarely covered in detail in medical school. Dr. Toedter is a member of the American Psychological Association, the Eastern Psychological Associations, and a charter member of the American Psychological Society.
