Stephanie joined the Forman-Herbert lab as a Research Assistant in the beginning of September. In May 2014, she graduated from Johns Hopkins University, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, with a Bachelor's in Psychology and Classics. During her Senior year, she interned at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, in the Neurobehavioral Outpatient Unit, which helps to treat problem behaviors such as self injury, aggression, and disruption in children with severe behavioral disorders and/or intellectual disabilities. Before that, she spent a semester in Rome at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies, embracing completely unforgettable views throughout Italy and learning the (unfortunately) not so-unforgettable details of Roman and Ancient Greek history, culture, archaeology, art, and architecture. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her family at their shore house in Ocean City, NJ, practicing the languages with which she was once at least adequate (Italian, Latin, Ancient Greek), folding origami, hiking, and traveling. She plans to apply to graduate programs for Clinical Psychology in the next year (for Fall 2016). In the meantime, she is looking forward to getting her hands on multiple projects within the lab and to investigating the differences of the various extensions of cognitive behavioral therapy, in particular those involving acceptance and mindfulness-based techniques.
