Feb 17, 2017


Over these past two weeks we have had many accomplishments worthy of congratulations, so we decided to compile them into one big news article!

  • Tracy Clouthier has matched at her top choice clinical internship at SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, NY. She will begin this year-long internship in late summer of 2017.
  • Lia Rosenstein was awarded the NASSPD 2017 Young Investigator Award for her paper submitted to the North American Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (NASSPD). She will receive $1000 cash, an engraved glass award, a one year membership to NASSPD, and complimentary attendance to the NASSPD banquet.
  • Benjamin Johnson has successfully defended his Master's thesis. Ben did a wonderful job with a large dataset and sophisticated analyses. His committee was very impressed. 
  • Caroline Gooch has received an offer from Tim Anderson at Ohio University. Tim has accepted a number of students from our lab such as Matt Perlman, Shannon McCarrick, and Wes Scala (who declined). Ohio University is a prestigious program and we are extremely proud of Caroline to have been given this offer she very much deserves!
  • Vera Du has received an offer to attend the clinical psychology program at Purdue University to work with Professor Katherine Thomas. Purdue is an esteemed program with a number of faculty who study personality research, and we are extremely happy for Vera! 
  • Lauren Lipner, a former lab manager, has received a $1000 travel award to attend the Annual Meeting of the International Society for Psychotherapy Research in Toronto this June where she will be presenting on a panel with Yogev, Tali Boritz, and Eshkol Rafaeli entitled "Psychotherapy for personality disorders: Multiple perspectives on the processes of change."
  • Two former undergraduates, Shannon McCarrick and Heather Close Yarger, have matched for internship at Wisconsin VA and Kennedy Krieger/Johns Hopkins University, respectively. 

Congratulations to everyone and their recent successes. We look forward to seeing more accomplishments from you all!
