Abuse and Trauma Lab

The AT-Lab is research lab at BSC that involves faculty-directed and faculty-student collaborative research on abuse and trauma. Students participating in the lab elect to do so on a volunteer basis, although some advanced upper-class students will propose an Independent Study (PY493) to earn partial or full credit (equivalent to a half or a full course) for their work. Lab students are dedicated to the science of psychology and are interested in learning more about the process of research. Most students are interested in applying to graduate school in psychology or a related field. The time commitment varies per week, but it averages to roughly 1 hour a week. Please contact Dr. Witte if you are interested in joining the lab.
