Bio/Research

Debbie Stiles is a Professor and Coordinator of Applied Education Psychology in the Multidisciplinary Studies Department at Webster University. Stiles is a psychologist, professor, and researcher who has dedicated her professional life to understanding and helping children and adolescents in schools. She began teaching in the Child Study Program at Webster College in 1981. Over the years Webster University gave her the opportunity to visit schools, consult, and conduct research in eleven countries of the world. Her goal now is to “give back” to Webster by encouraging students to challenge themselves, work collaboratively, present at professional conferences, and publish their work. Stiles developed and now coordinates programs in applied educational psychology and school psychology (LH 152). Stiles, a Fulbright scholar, is the author of one book and numerous articles that focus on the cross-cultural psychology, adolescent gender roles, psychology in schools, and children’s drawings. Her 2015 publications include the following co-authored articles: Practicing Psychology in Challenging Times: Schools and the Ferguson Crisis; Educating for Social Justice: Perspectives from Three Professional Programs in the U.S.A.; and Adolescents’ Drawings about School and School Subjects: Perspectives of Youth from India Compared with Youth from Seven Other Countries. She teaches courses such as Intercultural Communication; Applied Research; and Advanced Adolescent Psychology. Stiles is the Director of the Intercultural Research Center located in Loretto Hall at Webster University. The goal of the Center is to build an academic and professional community for graduate students and professors.
