C. Albert Bardi has taught at Sewanee since 2008.  A clinical psychologist, he earned BA degrees in Psychology and Philosophy at North Carolina State University. After completing a Harvard fellowship and earning his PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Professor Bardi worked as a tribal clinician for the San Carlos Apache of Arizona and the Passamaquoddy of Northern Maine.

As an academic, Professor Bardi has followed his own and his students’ interests in the development and validation of personality measures that relate to functioning including shyness, optimism, entitlement, comfort-seeking and assertiveness.

Professor Bardi is working with students to construct measures that are specifically tailored for non-dominant U.S. cultural groups.  Specifically, he and his students have conducted studies on the construct of assertiveness.  Their work is providing the basis for the inclusive understanding and measurement of assertiveness and related concepts such as passivity and aggressiveness.
