Kory Hardcastle is a Research Coordinator at IREACH. Currently, he is a PsyD in Clinical Psychology graduate student at Antioch University – Seattle (AUS). At AUS, Kory provides psychotherapy and assessments to a diverse client population in a university-based mental health clinic. In summer or fall 2023, he will begin a pre-internship at Therapeutic Health Services – Youth & Family Services. Kory previously earned a BS with a Major in Psychology and Minor in Sociology at WSU in 2017, and an Associates of Arts DTA at Centralia College in 2014. His certifications include a Certified Behavior Technician license, a Montreal Cognitive Assessment Certification, and he is in progress of becoming certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Children and Adolescents. Kory’s interests at work surround the neuropsychological testing and various epidemiological impacting events experience by Indigenous communities. Recently, he was awarded APA Division 55’s (Society for Prescribing Psychology) student grant to conduct research with Indigenous populations, “Constructing Culturally-Focused Psychopharmacological Treatments for Co-occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders Among Indigenous (American Indian) Adolescents.” Kory has the range of his favorite animals: cats. Ultimate Relaxation to Adrenaline Pumping Experiences is the best way he can describe it. Examples include: he can go from spending days behind his desk deep in research (or on his couch deep in shows while holding his cats) to throwing himself off a bridge with a bungee cord attached 8 times in 4ish months. His range to be social is the same as his range of activities. He thoroughly enjoys his personal time as much as he enjoys connecting with others.
