Dallas Ducar is a contemplative clinician. Dallas now serves as Clinical Lead for Mental Health Services at the MGH Transgender Health Program. Inspired by others, Dallas’ main interest involves revolutionizing healthcare, and empowering gender diverse (transgender and non-binary) individuals. She continually works to create a more celebratory and open hearted queer-friendly healthcare environment.
Her primary areas of interest include ethics, trauma, and resilience. Dallas' philosophical work centers on morality, existentialism, and identity theory. She believes that meaning-making is crucial to a healthy life.
Dallas’ main research interest focuses on the mind-body connection and the relationship to moral behavior and identity. She believes most, if not all research with human participants should harness the power of the Community Based Participatory Action Research (CBPAR) model.
Dallas has also taught courses in ethics, cognitive psychology, history, and biology. She has a great passion for the outdoors and loves to play the mandolin.
