Congratulations to three of our child clinical graduate students for their recent accomplishments! Colleen Harker (center) recently learned that she will be spending her clinical psychology predoctoral internship next year at UCLA, which was her first choice. Sarah Edmunds (right) and Lizzy Karp (left) each had first-authored manuscripts accepted for publication in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders. Sarah’s study involved a collaboration with researchers at Georgia Tech to investigate whether eyeglass-mounted camcorders can provide more accurate information about children’s eye-eye gaze with adults, compared with tripod-mounted camcorder; you can read about it in Spectrum News’ review or the scientific abstract. Lizzy’s study examined a “baby sibs” sample to identify the extent to which parental well-being (i.e., parenting stress and efficacy) and toddler’s behavior (i.e., language and social communication) contribute to parent’s concerns about their toddler’s development; to learn more about Lizzy’s study, you can read the scientific abstract.
Way to go, Sarah, Lizzy, and Colleen!
