Etiology & Prevention of Depression

I am a 3rd year graduate student in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral program at Vanderbilt University. I am currently working on two interventions projects. One project involves implementing a positive parenting program with mothers with the goal of increasing positive affect (PA) in their the children. The other project is a depression prevention program for which I lead parent groups that focus on teaching cognitive behavior techniques and positive parenting strategies. My reserach interests also include exploring factors related to the etiology of depression with the goal of identifying avenues for intervention and prevention.
