Roger D. Fallot, Ph.D.
Director of Research and Evaluation
Roger D. Fallot, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist and Director of Research and Evaluation at Community Connections. A graduate of Yale University (B.A., M.S., and Ph.D.), his professional areas of specialization include the development and evaluation of services for trauma survivors and the role of spirituality in recovery. The author of numerous clinical and research articles, he is a contributing author and co-editor (with Maxine Harris) of Using Trauma Theory to Design Service Systems (Jossey-Bass, 2001) and consults widely on the implementation of Creating Cultures of Trauma-Informed Care (CCTIC). A founding Board Member of the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Advisory Council for Women’s Services, Dr. Fallot was Principal Investigator on the District of Columbia Trauma Collaboration Study, a SAMHSA-funded research project examining the effectiveness of integrated services for women trauma survivors with mental health and substance abuse problems (1998-2004). He and a group of clinicians at Community Connections have developed a men’s version (M-TREM) of the Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model (TREM), a manualized group intervention for working with survivors of physical and sexual abuse. The effectiveness of both TREM and M-TREM was examined in separate NIMH-funded projects. Dr. Fallot is also interested in the relationships between spirituality, recovery, and well-being; he edited and contributed chapters to Spirituality and Religion in Recovery from Mental Illness (Jossey-Bass, 1998).
