His teaching currently focuses on group psychotherapy, domestic violence, and diagnostic and psychotherapy practicum seminars. Besides his academic activities, Dr. Dugo has gained extensive clinical experience through positions as consultant, coordinator, and director of various inpatient, outpatient, and follow-up programs and Chief of Psychology at Lutheran General Hospital in Des Plaines, Illinois, and through private practice offering individual, couples, and group therapy and specializing in forensic evaluations and treatment of domestic violence offenders and victims of abuse.
