She received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The University of Montana, and went on to complete her residency and post-doctoral fellowship in both Rehabilitation Psychology and Neuropsychology at The University of Washington Medical Center and Harborview Trauma Center. In addition, she completed a one year research fellowship at the Seattle VA examining the effects of repeated, blast-related mTBI in OEF/OIF/OND Veterans. Dr. Madathil provides psychological services with the goal of increasing function and quality of life for persons living with chronic illness, injury, and/or disability. Her current clinical practice focuses on assisting individuals and their support systems in coping with, and adapting to, the effects of injury or illness during and after hospitalization. She also specializes in brain-behavior relationships, and the neuropsychological assessment and treatment of neurological disorders. Her approaches are biopsychosocial and interdisciplinary in nature, and most often include brief, solution focused therapy, CBT, hypnosis for pain, mindfulness, cognitive rehabilitation, and neuropsychological evaluation.ResearchPrior to joining the URMC faculty, Dr. Madathil helped run two NIH funded studies examining the effects of blast-related injuries through the Seattle VA. During this time, her research also included how treatable conditions, such as PTSD, may affect the recovery of veterans with repeated blast-related concussion. Dr. Madathil's prior work has examined the utility of brief and computerized tools for cognitive assessment across multiple conditions (e.g., concussion, multiple sclerosis) to promote increased uptake of assessment with the aims of intervening upon cognitive impairments, and improving people’s recovery processes. As a clinical psychologist trained in rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology, she continues to use skills from these fields to inform her work to improve functional and psychological outcomes among individuals with chronic illness, injury, and disability. Current research includes the development of a tool for assessing psychological and behavioral factors as barriers and facilitators to participation in therapies., with the ultimate goal of informing team-based discussions and targeted interventions to improve functional outcomes post-hospitalization. She is also a collaborator on studies examining emotional and cognitive effects of interventions provided during hospitalization for patients with heart failure.CredentialsEducation2014PhD | University of MontanaPost-doctoral Training & Residency07/31/2015 - 07/30/2016Fellowship in Neuropsychology at University of Washington Medical Center07/01/2014 - 07/31/2015Internship in Neuropsychology at University of Washington Medical CenterPublicationsJournal Articles5/2020Beier, M., Alschuler, K., Amtmann, D., Hughes, A., Madathil, R., and Ehde, D.
