Lab member, Geena has recently been accepted to the University of Michigan!
Geena will being working toward her master’s in social work in the fall 2017. She will be concentrating on children and youth in families and society. Her ultimate goal is to work with youths who have been abused and neglected, as well as their families. She hopes to take what she has learned in the lab about posttraumatic growth to help foster growth in these children and their families through private and group therapy, intervention programs, and more.
Geena has helped with psycho-education at local high schools to educate at risk youth on posttraumatic growth. The lab has helped her to expand her writing, public speaking, critical thinking, and research skills which she plans to utilize going forward. Geena hopes to continue to help with lab projects and community psycho-education in her spare time. Congratulations, Geena!
