Dr. Parrott is Associate Professor, Director of Clinical Training and Chair, Clinical Psychology Program at Georgia State University. He received his PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Georgia in 2003.

His NIAAA funded research program aims to reduce interpersonal violence by (1) identifying risk and protective factors for perpetrating aggressive behavior and (2) informing intervention programming.  This work uses different methodologies (e.g., laboratory, survey) to study different forms of aggression (e.g., physical, sexual) toward various targets (e.g., sexual minorities, women) and under different conditions (e.g., alcohol intoxication, in group settings). One of his funded projects examines how specific affective and cognitive processes mediate the relationship between alcohol intoxication and partner-directed aggression. His group at GSU has recently completed the largest known laboratory-based project designed to ascertain in whom and in which situations alcohol intoxication causes aggression toward gay men and lesbians.
His clinical interests involve the assessment and treatment of adults with substance use and anger-related difficulties
