Dr. Hans Schroder, PhD is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan. Dr. Schroder received his BS, MA, and PhD in Clinical Psychology from Michigan State University and completed his predoctoral internship and two-year postdoctoral fellowship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School. Dr. Schroder is interested in larger narratives and beliefs about mental health problems and their treatment. He is particularly interested in the psychological and treatment decision-making consequences of biogenetic messages about mental illness – those messages and beliefs that emphasize chemical and genetic contributions to distress. Relatedly, he is interested in how clinicians frame mental illness origins and the impact these viewpoints have on treatment expectancies, engagement, and outcome.
