Department Chair of Counseling Psychology, Delaware Valley University

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Dr. Allison Buskirk-Cohen has always been fascinated by youth, with a certain interest in how peer and family relationships impact adjustment, particularly during significant transitions.  Her research has focused on how interpersonal relationships influence academic success and well-being. Her doctoral work addressed the role of peer relationships and mental health as students transitioned from elementary to middle school. 

Once Dr. Buskirk-Cohen began teaching at DelVal, her interests shifted to explore factors underlying student success in higher education.  Allison’s current work considers how professor-student relationships influence student success.  Allison received her BA in Psychology from Penn State University; MA in Developmental Psychology from Columbia University and a Ph.D. in Human Development from the University of Maryland.
