Welcome to FacTalk

A podcast series hosted by the Center for Faculty Development

FacTalk is a podcast series featuring ODU's scholars discussing their latest research and/or creative work. The podcast is a presentation of ODU's Center for Faculty Development and hosted by either the Director, Annette Finley-Croswhite, Ph.D., or the Educational Program Developer, Tomeka Wilcher, Ed.D.


Episode 1: Hosted by Dr. Tomeka Wilcher and featuring Dr. Cassie Glenn

In our first episode of FacTalk, Dr. Cassie Glenn, assistant professor of psychology and director of the Youth Risk and Resilience (YR2) Lab at ODU, discusses her recent scholarly work examining the link between sleep problems and suicidal thinking among high-risk adolescents. In addition, she discusses her recently funded NIH grant exploring how interpersonal stress relates to suicidal behavior among high-risk adolescents. This project is in collaboration with Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CHKD). Dr. Glenn concludes by providing some teaching best practices that have been successful with her own students.

Dr. Glenn received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Stony Brook University and completed an NIMH-funded postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University. She was previously an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Rochester and took up her position in the Department of Psychology at ODU in 2020.
