Biography

Doug Daugherty is the Dean for the Rosemead School of Psychology at Biola University. He is a clinical psychologist with more than 20 years of experience teaching and providing psychotherapy, supervision, and consultation in a variety of settings. Prior to joining Rosemead, Dr. Daugherty served as Executive Dean (VPAA) for the College of Arts and Sciences at Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU). He has published in the areas of substance abuse; ecological momentary assessment and intervention; student belonging and student success; and positive psychology. Most recently, he co-authored the book, Promoting Belonging, Growth Mindset, and Resilience to Foster Student Success, in cooperation with the National Resource Center for Students in Transition at the University of South Carolina.

Dr. Daugherty is a founding partner in LifeData LLC, which offers a web-based platform and mobile app for real-time assessment in the context of daily life. The LifeData system has been used by researchers around the world to study pediatric concussions, depression, PTSD, cancer recovery, body image, high school students’ emotions, psychosis, alcohol use, smoking, ACT, gratitude, and hope, among other topics. It was their shared interest in the lived experience of spiritual exemplars that led Dr. Daugherty and his colleagues to develop the LifeData system.

Dr. Daugherty completed a PsyD in clinical psychology at Indiana State University and an MA in Clinical Psychology at Ball State University. Prior to serving in administration, he was a Professor of Psychology and Addictions Counseling at IWU for more than 15 years. He has also served as program evaluator for several problem-solving courts (Drug Court, Reentry Court, and Family Court) and is the founder of a faith-based recovery home in Marion, Indiana.
