Scott A. Langenecker, PhD,is a clinical neuropsychologist and is a Professor of Psychiatry and Adjunct Professor of Psychology at the University of Utah. Dr. Langenecker's clinical work focuses on the lifespan approach to mood and anxiety disorders, with particular focus on life transitions (e.g., adolescence to adulthood). His work includes accessing strengths to achieve greater levels of independence, workplace accommodations, and remediation of weaknesses. He sees patients ages 12 throughout adulthood for neuropsychological assessments and provides psychotherapy for depression.

He completed his training at Marquette University, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and the University of Michigan. His research addresses the neurobiological features of mood disorders, in relation to onset, course, responsivity to treatment, likelihood of attrition, likelihood of recurrence, risk for suicide, impact of childhood adversity, buffering affects of family cohesion, and risk for disability.
