Background:

Jenny Grant, M.A., is a fourth-year Year clinical graduate student from the United Kingdom. She completed her undergraduate at John Carroll University, Cleveland OH, and is currently working on her prelim under the guidance of her advisor, Dr. Joshua Grubbs. Most of her research focuses on addictions, including substance use, alcohol, gambling, and other behavioural addictions, as well as trauma and religion/spirituality. However, she enjoys working in the Finding Balance in Emotions and Eating lab because of its work using DBT skills to help treat unhelpful eating behaviours. She hopes to use this knowledge to transfer to her work with addictions, particularly those that are not considered full diagnoses. After graduating, Jenny hopes to continue to do research and teach at a University, as well as continue with some clinical work.
