Short Project Description
Dr. Kate Comtois' research lab conducts clinical trials and health services research for suicide prevention (for more information, go to www.comtoislab.org).
The Preventing Addiction Related Suicide (PARS) study aims to evaluate the effectiveness and utility of a psychoeducational suicide prevention program designed to be used within Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) utilizing a novel, randomized stepped wedge design. Study participants will be recruited directly from the IOP groups throughout the Western Washington area.
We are seeking students with serious interest in graduate school and pursuing a career in research, clinical psychology, or a related field.
Veterans, Reserve and Guard members as well as ethnic minority students, students first in their family to attend a four-year college, and returning students are strongly encouraged to apply. Our goal is to prepare and support non-traditional students seeking eventual admission to a graduate school program best suited for their ideal career in behavioral health, clinical or counseling psychology or medicine. Dr. Comtois' lab also offers opportunities for mentorship as part of the McNair and Early Identification Program.
