Psychology major, Norik Karikosian, traveled to the 50th Annual Convention of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies in New York City this past October. Read below about Norik’s recent travel experience!

“I was selected as a recipient of the undergraduate student travel award, which allowed me to attend the 50th annual convention of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies. Attending the ABCT conference provided me a great opportunity to present my work and network with mental health professionals. I got to present two posters based on independent research I complete while on my last co-op at the Behavioral Health Partial Hospital Program at McLean Hospital, one looking at the effectiveness of a short-term DBT skills-training group therapy intervention, and one looking at treatment response disparities for LGBTQ patients receiving care in our program. Receiving the award made it possible to travel to New York and pay for accommodation while attending the conference. ”
