Sarah Russin, M.A., is a third-year Clinical Psychology doctoral student. Sarah completed her undergraduate education at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. For her current research, Sarah studies the effects of posttraumatic stress disorder, sexual violence, and abuse on both individuals and their families. She is also interested in research involving family members of individuals with mental illness broadly. Sarah enjoys working in the Finding Balance in Emotions and Eating lab because of its work understanding the etiology of eating pathology and because it helps her to gain a deeper understanding of dialectical behavior therapy skills and their application to health behaviors.
