Erin Reilly

Undergraduate Degree: Clark University, B.A. Psychology and Women’s & Gender Studies

Research Interests: My research utilizes both quantitative and qualitative methodologies to examine the alignment of coping strategies and mental-health with gender norm conformity. In my research, I focus on the ways gender adherence can help or hinder the adoption of healthy coping strategies such as self-confidence, self-compassion, and help-seeking. Additionally, I am interested in the assessment of programs and interventions aimed at college students, with a specific emphasis on those who are experiencing difficulties with stress, self-esteem, academic self-efficacy, and depression.

Professional Aspirations:I plan to seek a career that allows me to engage in clinical work as well as program assessment/research in a college population.

Expected Graduation Date: 2015

Hobbies: Reading, antiquing, painting, dog training, searching for the perfect espresso-based drink
