Dr. Chanda Murphy
Instructor of Psychological Science & Counseling,
M.S. Industrial-Organizational Psychology Program
Austin Peay State University
I-O Psychology at APSU
I worked as a corporate trainer and instructional designer at Sedgwick CMS for five years before earning my PhD in Experimental Psychology with a concentration in I/O Psychology from the University of Memphis in 2017. Before joining the MSIO program at APSU, I taught undergraduates in psychology for 9 years at Christian Brothers University where I established a bachelors degree in I/O Psychology. I also provide consulting in the areas of hiring, group dynamics, leadership, work life balance, as well as social emotional learning for both children and adults. My applied work also includes running the website mindfulinmemphis.org to educate and bring the Memphis community together through mindfulness events. My research interests surround the topic of mindfulness interventions with differing populations and constructs of work life balance such as stress and burnout.
I am accepting students to work with me on research projects and am willing to serve on thesis committees.
