Kristin Hunt, a graduate student studying clinical psychology at Howard University, was interested in how traumatic experiences affect children, and the RISE program offered the opportunity to delve into data on the population she was interested in studying. “I was able to see in hard, fast numbers how big of a problem trauma is and how it affects kids, either through stress or psychological issues.” After completing the RISE program, she went on to an internship working with families at the Child and Family Therapy Clinic at Kennedy Krieger, which led to a postdoctoral fellowship and a psychologist position in the Institute’s Department of Behavioral Psychology.
