Jesse Klein, Ph.D.
Visiting Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry
Dr. Klein is a clinical psychologist who specializes in evidence-based psychosocial treatment for children and adolescents with externalizing disorders (i.e. ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, and conduct disorder). He coordinates IJR’s disruptive behavior disorders clinic and he directs IJR’s parenting groups. He is particularly interested in adapting evidence-based psychosocial treatments for externalizing disorders to be culturally relevant to children and families living in low-income, urban communities.
Dr. Klein received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Northwestern University and his Bachelor of Arts from New York University. He completed his internship in clinical psychology at the University of Washington.
Dr. Klein is also interested in the evaluation of mental health service programs. He is currently working on an evaluation of Illinois’ Screening Assessment and Support Services (SASS) program. SASS is a statewide program that provides psychiatric assessment and intervention to publicly funded children and adolescents who are in need of acute mental health services.
