During Dr. Robert Gall’s time in higher education, he has served in both administrative and faculty roles. As a faculty, he has taught undergraduate psychology classes, graduate counseling classes, and doctoral counseling classes. Additionally, he has served on several dissertation committees as a subject matter expert and as a statistician consultant.

Professionally, Dr. Gall ran several facilities for the developmentally disabled, developed and supervised outpatient and intensive-outpatient treatment programs for drug and alcohol patients, and developed a sex-offender treatment program specifically designed for the developmentally disabled. Further, Dr. Gall has extensive experience working with various criminal populations, abused and neglected children, and the court system.

Dr. Gall has also provided forensic expertise on the vocational impact of worker’s compensation injuries, testimony on risk assessment for criminals and addicts and testimony in child abuse/custody cases. In a nutshell, most of Dr. Gall’s professional life has been working with and advocating for disenfranchised populations.

Dr. Gall’s research interests currently entail the role of personality in intercultural development. Additionally, Dr. Gall continues to be involved in drug and alcohol treatment research as well as counseling in general.

Personally, Dr. Gall spends most of his free time gardening, woodworking, remodeling (or at least he seems to do a lot of it), as well as outdoor activities such as hiking and fishing. He also has a passion for learning. As such, Dr. Gall embraces the tenets of the Renaissance. One should know as much about as many things as one can. Learning is the spark that can ignite a lifetime of growth and captivate the imagination.
