Ronald Stolberg, Ph.D.

Alliant International University clinical psychology professor Ronald Stolberg, Ph.D., recently published an article in U-T San Diego titled "New Apps Encourage Cyberbulling," co-authored with licensed clinical psychologist Darlene Sweetland, Ph.D.. The article highlights a recent problem in mobile application development where the option to communicate anonymously has led to a rise in cyberbullying. Children are becoming more susceptible to this type of bullying as mobile applications become more popular with younger age groups and the article provides a list of helpful tips for parents looking to prevent this.

Darlene Sweetland, Ph.D.

Stolberg currently serves on the board of directors at the nationally renowned Winston School where children struggling with learning disorders begin to enjoy school and academically thrive again. He has authored several chapters published in seminal textbooks in psychology and recently contributed to a new book "Therapeutic Assessment with the MMPI-2."

Sweetland has 20 years of experience specializing in work with children, adolescents and adults. As a therapist she emphasizes collaboration with other integral people in a person’s life. This includes professionals such as teachers, school administrators, doctors, psychiatrists, tutors, occupational therapists and speech therapists.

Stolberg and Sweetland also released a book in March 2015 titled “Teaching Kids to Think: Raising Confident, Independent, and Thoughtful Children in an Age of Instant Gratification.”
