Emma Whitmyre, BA, Research Assistant
Emma graduated in May of 2014 from New York University with a bachelor's degree in Psychology and minors in Child & Adolescent Mental Health and in Music. She has had the opportunity to work on research projects studying adolescent mental health throughout college. She spent the last year studying advisory period in an alternative high school in NYC and also assisting with research at the Eating and Weight Disorders Program at Mount Sinai Hospital. She presented a poster at the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Conference on The Role of Gender in the Relationship Between PTSD Symptoms and Overt Attitudes Towards Alcohol in a Clinical Adolescent Sample, with George Mason University, last Fall. Emma is particularly interested in how depression impacts different populations and will be working on a project developing a model for Maternal Depression care this year at the IDEAS Center. She will also be involved in the Learning Collaborative project. She could not be more excited to be part of such a wonderful research team, and later plans to pursue a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology.
