Forensic Psychology

Throughout her doctoral work, Patricia will have the opportunity to analyze trauma and resilience profiles in at-risk youth. Therefore, during her stay in Connecticut, she plans to specialize in the assessment of youth with traumatic experiences, so that in future she can work with professional staff who daily interact with these traumatized youth, to develop and implement specific interventions according to these population’s needs.
