Charisse Nixon, Ph.D.
Full Professor of Psychology,
Penn State Behrend

Dr. Nixon serves as a full professor of psychology at Penn State Behrend and as associate director for the Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Community Outreach, Research, and Evaluation, a center dedicated to promoting and sustaining positive communities for youth. She trains educators in the areas of bullying prevention and resilience throughout the United States. Her programs offer a unique integration of empirical research and practical strategies to help teachers, counselors, mental health professionals, and caring adults create environments that optimize developmental outcomes for children and adolescents.
