Ph.D. Candidate Profile


Christi P. Hardeman

MSW, Georgia State University, 2010
BA, Psychology, Murray State University, 1990

Christi Hardeman, upon completion of her MSW, spent the next few years providing social services to children of all ages while employed in various settings such as the Fulton County Family Drug Court, the school system, and a behavioral health center. This background led her to complete her clinical license as well as her play therapy registration.Currently, Hardeman has broadened her clinical experience by starting her own practice where she provides mental health services to older adults at assisted living facilities on a consultant basis. Her research interests stem from her experience with children and our aging population which includes child- parent bonding and attachment, prison daycare benefits, aging with dignity including issues of autonomy as well as quality of care and life.
