I am a clinical neuropsychologist by training. My PhD was completed at the University of Georgia with specialization in clinical neuropsychology under the mentorship of Dr. George Hynd. I served as the Clinical Director of a Head Trauma Program and Chief Psychologist at the Millard Center in Edmonton, Alberta for 5 years. In 2006, I joined the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Alberta. I am a Full Professor associated with the School and Clinical Child Psychology Program. I am personally focused on important issues within post-secondary institutions related to academic freedom, freedom of speech, and representing diverse viewpoints including those from moral and faith based perspectives. Below are my specific areas of research interest.
Dr. Mrazik’s research and clinical work focuses on psychoeducational assessment of intelligence, academics, and emotional/behavioral functioning of children. With previous experience as a school psychologist, Dr. Mrazik is interested in applied psychological assessment, particularly as it applies to the school setting. He teaches the individual psychological assessment courses in the School and Clinical Child Psychology Program.
Traumatic brain injury/sport concussion: My background in clinical neuropsychology has led to special interest in traumatic brain injury and sport concussion. I am interested in neuropsychological assessment of traumatic brain injury including sport concussion. Current projects involve psychological outcomes of sport concussions through collaborations on several CIHR funded projects, and active rehabilitation of athletes following concussion. In addition, I have collaborations with a multi-national study investigating rehabilitation of professional athletes following sport concussion
