Sara Landes, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences

Sara J. Landes, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist interested in researching the implementation of evidence-based mental health treatments, with a focus on suicide prevention and larger health care systems. She completed a predoctoral psychology internship and an NIMH-funded NRSA postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington School of Medicine where she developed clinical expertise in interventions for suicide, specifically Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). During her fellowship, she helped write a NIMH-funded conference grant that resulted in the creation of the Society for Implementation Research Collaboration. Following fellowship, Dr. Landes worked at the VA’s National Center for PTSD’s Dissemination and Training Division where she was awarded a VA QUERI Rapid Response Project (RRP) to examine implementation of DBT in VA. She was also a co-investigator on two Department of Defense-funded implementation research projects that examined online training and dissemination through a provider registry. Dr. Landes is currently leading a VA HSR&D-funded project to evaluate the implementation of interventions for suicide with the VA’s Office of Suicide Prevention and serves on the Military Suicide Research Consortium Dissemination and Implementation Core.
