PSYC 215 - Research on Child Mental Health

This course involves students in ongoing research in Dr. Amy Heberle’s lab. Research in the lab addresses the etiology, prevention, and treatment of mental health problems in young children, particularly children growing up in poverty. Current areas of focus include critical consciousness as a potential protective factor for young children experiencing marginalizing systems and elementary and early educational interventions that promote thriving for children in poverty. Actual work depends on the stage of the research project, and may include literature reviews, data collection and follow-up, data analysis and interpretation, argument building, and writing and presentation of findings. This is a collaborative course where students work as a team on current research.

This course fulfills the lab/research requirement of the psychology major.

Prerequisites: PSYC 108  , PSYC 109  , and either PSYC 150  , PSYC 152  , or PSYC 153  . By permission of instructor.
