Family Translational Research Group: Externship Opportunity

Also see the email from the Psychology Department which includes the attached externship application.

I am writing on behalf of the Family Translational Research Group, co-directed by Drs. Richard E. Heyman and Amy Smith-Slep. We conduct  research on a wide variety of cutting edge topics ranging from (a) how anger, conflict, and family violence affect children’s and adult’s psychological and physical functioning to (b) defining maltreatment in ways that can be reliably used by field workers to (c) understanding how couples’ conflict dynamics relate to violence to (d) furthering our understanding of risk and protective factors for child maltreatment and partner abuse.

We are currently looking for undergraduate and graduate level students who might be looking to gain more experience in the field of clinical psychology by completing an externship with our group. We are especially trying to find outgoing and motivated individuals who would be interested in working with us on a brand new research study that we just launched involving adolescents and their dating relationships. These individuals would be involved in a variety of different aspects of the project (i.e., recruitment at local high schools and other establishments; calling parents to collect consent; data entry/cleaning; participating in project meetings; possibly help run assessments, etc). This externship requires a 2 semester commitment and students typically work 12 hours each week.

Many thanks in advance for the help!
