Chayse Haldane

Graduate Student Research Assistant

Bio

My name is Chayse Haldane and I am currently in my first year of my Masters of Education – Counselling Psychology. In addition to working as a Research Assistant, I also work at Alberta Hospital as a Psychiatric Aide. My research interests are broad, but my thesis research is on therapeutic assessment. I like to be involved in advocacy and awareness for mental health and social justice issues by work I have done in the community, primarily through the Distress Line. Once I have completed a PhD, I would like to become involved in education as a professor and work as a psychologist in corrections or more specifically, with at-risk youth.

Fall 2016 is the final semester in my Bachelor of Science degree with specialization in psychology.

I am interested in a variety of research topics, some of which are cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology, and psychophysiology. Upon completion of my BSc, I hope to enter a career in psychological research. However, I may instead enter a Masters program in psychology to further my research experience and skills set before entering into a career.
