James A. Incorvaia, Phd, d. 2020
Founding Chancellor, and Director of the Reiss-Davis Graduate School
In Memoriam page
Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio
Dr. Incorvaia came to Reiss-Davis for the two-year post-graduate fellowship program, thinking he would return home to Cleveland afterward, but was then given an offer he couldn't refuse to join Reiss-Davis. During his tenure he was a clinician, taught, headed the PEDS Program, and finally become Director for the program. He helped shepherd Reiss-Davis through joining the Vista Del Mar Family of Services, the integration of the Graduate School into its education program, the creation of the Reiss-Greenberg Chair, the formulation of the Saturday at the Center Continuing Education lecture series, the transformation of the Graduate School into a one-weekend a month program.
His work promoted the clinical, educational and research excellence to which the Reiss-Davis Child Study Center aspires.
