Elizabeth Wynn, one of our dedicated undergraduate research assistants, recently presented a poster at the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association (RMPA) in Salt Lake City! Her poster was titled: "Implementing a Measurement Feedback System in a Psychology Graduate Training Clinic." This project is part of her Honor's thesis, and she presented initial findings of clinicians' feedback on using OwlOutcomes in their training. We are so proud of Elizabeth and excited to continue this research!
It's interview season here in the doctoral program at Utah State and we have many fantastic applicants coming to campus this month. It is hard to know what to expect for graduate school interviews, and there are few resources are out there to demystify the process. Dr. Mitch Prinstein and his students at UNC-Chapel Hill have prepared a very helpful guide that might be of interest to applicants interviewing for doctoral programs, or those who are considering the graduate school path and are looking for advice about the process. Best of luck to everyone during this interview season!
Molly did a fantastic job defending her thesis, entitled: "The effects of familism and sibling relationship on Mexican-origin youths’ intentions for substance use." She will be working to move her thesis towards publication, including the potential to add a longitudinal component before submitting the manuscript. She defended slightly more than one year after starting the PhD program, which is incredibly efficient! Congrats Molly on this great accomplishment!
Thanks to Dr. Melanie Domenech-Rodriguez and Dr. Ginger Lockhart for serving as thesis committee members. We also extend our thanks to Dr. Rick Robins and the California Families Project (CFP) team for permission to use CFP data, NIDA for funding the CFP study, and importantly, to those families that participated in the study.
