Research Team


A significant part of the theoretical and practical research training in the Counseling Psychology Program takes place in research teams headed by the faculty of the program.   My research team is made up of both doctoral and masters-level graduate students.  We meet weekly as a group and independently in project sub-teams to work on a variety of tasks associated with current and on-going research projects.  The team and sub-team meetings allow members to collaborate and support each other on carrying out tasks and research projects.  

Team members are actively involved in various stages of current research projects (see Research link), and are encouraged to be co-presenters or co-authors on papers that they significantly help shape.  

We generally recruit team members in the Fall of each academic year.  If you are interested in joining us, please contact Dr. Lau or the team coordinator.
