Bio

Candalyn B. Rade is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Penn State Harrisburg. Dr. Rade earned her M.S from the Psychology in the Public Interest program and her Ph.D. from the Applied Social and Community Psychology program at North Carolina State University. Dr. Rade takes an interdisciplinary approach to her research that draws from community psychology, social psychology, and criminal justice. Her research focuses on (1) successful community reentry after justice system involvement, including barriers to reentry, stigma toward formerly incarcerated persons, and access to community-based services; and (2) assessment and treatment for justice-involved adults with serious mental illnesses. She also teaches in the undergraduate psychology program and the Community Psychology and Social Change graduate program.
