Jason M. Holland, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is also presently the Associate Editor for Death Studies, an inter-disciplinary peer-reviewed journal focusing on research, theory, and clinical issues related to death and dying. Dr. Holland obtained his doctoral degree in 2008 from the University of Memphis. In his final year of doctoral training, he completed a clinical internship at the Palo Alto VA, specializing in clinical geropsychology. Following this experience, Holland went on to complete a 3-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Palo Alto VA and Stanford University School of Medicine, which focused on research related to aging and mental/physical health.

Holland has published more than 40 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and invited papers that examine issues related to grief and loss, caregiving, coping with chronic/serious illness, aging and mental health, neuroendocrinological responses to stress, and meaning-reconstruction following traumatic life events. Most recently, he has developed several assessment tools, which tap into the unique existential and spiritual consequences of loss and trauma. Holland has also been recognized for his work with family caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients and was awarded the Kathryn Grupe Award for Alzheimer’s Research by the Alzheimer’s Association in 2008.
