Abbie E. Goldberg

Professor of Psychology, Clark University

Dr. Goldberg is a Professor of Clinical Psychology at Clark University. A central theme of her research is the decentering of any “normal” or “typical” family, sexuality, or gender, to allow room for diverse families, sexualities, and genders. For 20 years, Dr. Goldberg has been conducting a longitudinal study of adoptive families headed by female, male, and heterosexual couples, which focuses in part on families’ experiences in the school setting. She also conducts research on the higher educational experiences of trans and gender-nonconforming individuals, postpartum well-being in women with diverse sexual histories, and relationship dissolution and divorce in diverse families.
