Major
Psychology

"My experience working at the CASA lab has not only helped me develop research team experience, but has also exposed me to working with families and children of various backgrounds. During this journey, I have learned skills such as, administering a child and parent report of family coping, administering family observational interaction tasks, administering family stressor vignettes, and family conflict topics at the family’s home. Throughout these interactions I have come to understand the level of stress these families endure. This realization has led me to want to help families build their resiliency to combat stress by helping them learn healthy coping strategies. I believe that this opportunity has helped to solidify my choice in a future career."
