Rachel H. Jacobs, Ph.D.
Research Assistant Professor
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Dr. Jacobs has a background in treatment outcomes for pediatric mood disorders and is interested in studying mechanisms of effective treatment. Recently, Dr. Jacobs has focused on the problem of relapse in adolescent depression and whether mindfulness may protect against the return of depressive symptoms. She has received funding from the Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation and UIC Campus Research Board to fund a pilot project in this area.
Dr. Jacobs received her B.A. from the University of Michigan and her Ph.D. from Northwestern University where she was funded by a F31 NRSA to study cognitive change in the treatment of adolescent depression. Her internship in clinical child psychology was completed at IJR. Dr. Jacobs completed a T32 postdoctoral fellowship at Columbia University where her primary focus was learning the methodology of fMRI.
