Dr. Mayhew is trained, licensed, and experienced in Marital & Family Therapy, a systems approach to assessing, diagnosing, and treating hurting individuals within encumbered relationships. He is capable of teaching, advising, and mentoring students in the theories, research methodologies, and application of human service and human development. With licensure and Approved Supervisory status with the Minnesota Licensure Board of Marriage and Family Therapy, he holds Clinical Member status with the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). Much of his clinical practice has been with individuals and families in outpatient clinical and day treatment settings.
He has teaching, advising, and research theses-directing experience at the graduate student level at university settings. Most of this work has been in the development of a Master of Science degree program in Marriage and Family Therapy. This MS degree is an accredited program with the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and with the Minnesota Licensure Board of Marriage and Family Therapy.
His research interests have become focused on the reconciliation of human differences within simple, complex, and technological systems amid a rapidly changing industrial world. Likewise, he served as a postdoctoral research associate to examine Social & Emotional Learning (i.e., social intelligence) and School-Family Partnerships.
Apart from ongoing clinical practice, Dr. Mayhew’s academic pursuit has been the development of a method that merges the therapeutic capabilities of information acquisition, maneuverability, and intervention with the information management techniques of aerospace engineering. This method provides product and/or service delivery with greater efficiency and heightened “stakeholder” satisfaction. This work has led to research and consulting in the US Departments of Energy and Agriculture, as well as at private levels with defense contractors, hospitals, school districts, and regional watershed management organizations.
