Eastern Michigan University doctoral students Miriam Goldstein and Katherine Guyon-Harris were recently honored for their work in the field of clinical psychology.
Goldstein was titled as a Division 39 Graduate Student Scholar for 2015 by the American Psychological Association.
Being a student scholar means Goldstein will go to the 2015 spring conference of Division 39 in San Francisco while also receiving an award of $500, subscriptions to important newsletters, journals and mentors to consult with on her professional development.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to further explore my interest in psychoanalysis which has become quite strong over the past few years,” Goldstein said in a statement. “I’m also counting down the days until I get to soak up some sun in San Francisco.”
Guyon-Harris was the recipient of the Graduate Dean’s Award for Research Excellence for her master’s thesis. The focus of the thesis was on mothers’ depression after the birth of a child and how that could affect the child’s mental health.
“I was ecstatic when I received the letter in the mail,” said Guyon-Harris in a statement. “I think so highly of my colleagues here at EMU and the work they are doing, so it was truly an honor to have the work my adviser Dr. Huth-Bocks and I are doing recognized with this award.”
The graduate school awards students with this honor to reward them for participation in excellent research projects that eventually lead to a thesis or dissertation. The award comes with a $250 prize, and a plaque presented during the Graduate Research Fair Awards Ceremony in March.
