DALLAS (SMU) Southern Methodist University's Department of Psychology, funded by a grant from the U.S. State Department, will work with a women's university in Peshawar, Pakistan to strengthen that institution's psychology studies and promote better understanding between the United States and Pakistan.

The three-year agreement between SMU and the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Women's University is scheduled to run through January 2016 and totals more than $1 million.

"This is an exciting opportunity for the Psychology Department as we form our first international partnership, and we look forward to sharing our expertise in research and clinical work to strengthen the psychology department at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Women University," said George Holden, SMU psychology professor and project director. "This grant will also allow us, through scholarly exchange visits, to develop research collaborations and learn from Pakistani colleagues."

  • To improve the SBBWU Psychology Clinic's capacity to provide assessments and therapy for the people of Peshawar
