Stephanie Trudeau serves as Affiliate Assistant Professor for the School of Psychology & Marriage and Family Therapy program at Fuller Theological Seminary. Guided by a biopsychosocial/spiritual (BPSS) model and systems theories, her work aims to inform the intersection of families and health. The three primary areas which she aims to generate new knowledge and inform best-practices include: a) collaboration and integration of family therapy and family medicine (e.g., Medical Family Therapy, Integrated Behavioral Health, Collaborative Family Healthcare); b) engaging families and community in family health and wellbeing (e.g., caregiver wellbeing, family centered healthcare, spirituality and wellbeing); and c) resilient and thriving systems (e.g., provider burnout, interdisciplinary team wellbeing; Psychological First Aid, systemic interventions, community health initiatives, quality improvement, program development and evaluation). She resides in Minneapolis, MN with her husband and 3 children.
