Faith Scanlon, a May 2017 graduate, is looking forward to continuing her academic journey at Texas Tech University, where she is joining the Counseling Psychology doctoral program, with a specialty in forensics. As an Honors Psychology student at Temple, she worked as a research assistant in Dr. Michael McCloskey’s Mechanisms of Affective Dysregulation (MAD) laboratory, examining the factors associated with emotion regulation.
In addition to working in the MAD lab, Faith has also spent time at Mount Sinai Hospital’s Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program researching treatment-resistant depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and bipolar disorder. She has also interned for Dr. Maria Khan, a Population Health Researcher at NYU Langone Medical Center. Faith reports that “Armed with my previous research experiences at Temple, NYU, and Mount Sinai, I feel well-prepared to begin my graduate education!” This summer, Faith also plans to volunteer in Ecuador before moving to Texas to begin her studies.
