1. What inspired you to choose clinical psychology?

I chose clinical psychology after almost going to medical school actually. The more I worked in medical settings and shadowed doctors, the more I realized that my passion was in helping patients with their psychological well-being rather than medical injuries. This was affirmed during my postbac job at the National Center for PTSD where I worked as a psychology technician doing a combination of research and clinical work, I found my job incredibly fulfilling and decided to pursue clinical psychology from there.

2. What population do you enjoy working with?

I enjoy working with adult clients. I particularly enjoy working with depression and trauma, and working with clients struggling with their interpersonal relationships.

3. What do you consider to be your strengths as a clinician?

This is tough to say because I am always growing and developing skills as a clinician in training. I've been told I am strong in building rapport with clients, asking questions, and "meeting clients where they're at."

4. Do you have any advice for someone struggling with mental health issues?

Everyone struggles from time to time, and you're not alone. Give yourself permission and self-compassion to feel all it is that you're feeling, how your feeling is valid. Talk to a friend, loved one, or licensed professional about how you're feeling when you're up for it, staying connected is important and there are resources out there to help with this. Brighter days are ahead and you won't feel this way forever.

5. What do you do for fun in your free time?

I like working out, hiking, reading, and baking bread!

6. What’s one fun fact about you?

I have my black belt, I trained in karate for 8 years!

Another week, another Clinic Spotlight! Meet Faith Nomamiukor, a 4th year Clinical Psychology student and a clinician here at the UNCG Psychology Clinic.

1. What inspired you to pursue clinical psychology?

Initially, my sister, who I am extremely close to, inspired me to be a psychologist when she started her psychiatry rotation in medical school and shared her experiences of working with the mentally ill. I then decided to pursue a bachelor’s in psychology, however, my family, in typical Nigerian fashion, shared that they had the expectation that I would obtain a doctorate degree.

Still, as an undergrad I wasn’t sure exactly if I would become a psychologist, but I decided that I should start volunteering in research labs in case I needed the experience on applications if I did decide to go that route. After volunteering in different research labs for a couple of years, I learned a lot about the field. My undergraduate lab experiences solidified my desire to pursue both research and clinical work, by getting a PhD in clinical psychology.

2. What’s your favorite part of working at the clinic?

My clients are my favorite part of working in the clinic. I have been lucky to have kind and caring clients and I feel honored to have their trust in working through the intimate challenges they face with respect to their mental health and stress management concerns.

3. What is your area of expertise?

With respect to research, I have a passion for researching stigma and negative mental health outcomes for survivors of sexual assault, particularly male survivors. Men who are sexual assault survivors face many unique and under discussed challenges, partially due to harmful societal beliefs about masculinity.

4. Do you have any words of advice for empowering BIPOC to seek professional help through therapy?

There are a lot of BIPOC therapists themselves and a multitude of caring therapists dedicated to supporting the needs of BIPOC individuals through therapy. It is always worth it to take time to invest and care for yourself, whether that is through therapy, mediation, exercise or whatever way one sees fit. However, if someone does believe that they might be struggling with an overwhelming amount of stress, therapy can be of great help. I know for sure that on campus here at UNCG, the counseling center and the UNCG psychology clinic, where I am, are heavily dedicated to the betterment of the mental welfare of BIPOC individuals.
5. What does your own self-care routine look like?

I usually try to avoid work on Saturdays, and just get one day a week to just rest. I enjoy planning out home cooked meals, baking bread, and eating healthy in general. I also try to work out 2-3 times a week. Lastly, I put a lot of value on my relationships with people, and most nights I am up late chatting up an old friend or hanging out with one of my neighbors.

6. What’s one really fun and random fact about yourself?

Every day I try to encourage at least one person to remember to lift weights. I love working out, and for about a year now I have been pursuing powerlifting as a hobby, as inspired by one of my best friends who happens to be a fitness trainer.

We're back with our Clinic Spotlights! Meet Dr. Jason L. Herndon who serves as clinic director of the UNCG Psychology Clinic. As a black psychologist, we would like to recognize and honor Dr. Herndon for this year’s Black History Month for his contributions to the clinic, including improving access to quality and equitable services to diverse, underserved clients across the Piedmont Triad area.

1. What inspired you to pursue clinical psychology?

I've always been interested in people, how they think, and how they interact with one another, so psychology felt like the natural choice.

2. What’s your favorite part of working at the clinic?

Working with our graduate students is definitely my favorite part.

3. What is your area of expertise?

Parent training, couples therapy, and clinic administration.

4. Do you have any words of advice for empowering BIPOC to seek professional help through therapy?

You deserve to feel good and to live the life you want. Therapy can help you get there.

5. What does your own self-care routine look like?

We have a newborn, so not great, but I'm focusing on sleeping as much as he'll let me and drinking enough water.

6. What’s one really fun and random fact about yourself?

At some point when I was a kid I started calling shredded cheese "sprinkle cheese" and never stopped. It's embarrasing.

For many Americans, the month of November is associated with Thanksgiving, a celebratory time where families come together and revel in gratitude. It is also important to recognize that this American holiday has been referred to as the National Day of Mourning for Indigenous communities in the New England region since 1970. As November is Native American History Month, this can be a time to reflect and honor Indigenous peoples, a population that is often invisible and whose culture is often erased from our history, discourse, and national celebrations.

The impacts of European colonization aren’t a thing of the past. Indigenous communities have disportionately higher rates of mental health issues, many of which can be linked to the intergenerational historical trauma experienced by this population. While issues such as su***de, substance use, and trauma are prevalent among indigenous communities, these groups have fewer resources, including limited access to mental health care and treatment. Furthermore, Western systems of care have historically often failed to address the specific needs and values of Indigenous communities. Instead, practitioners have imposed a Western framework of what constitutes health and wellness and. this cultural disregard can further perpetuate trauma and inequalities in health and healthcare.

During this month, we would like to honor the rightful stewards of the land we are built on. The UNCG Psychology Clinic recognizes the importance of research, education, and practice for addressing indigenous mental health. We are committed to providing culturally competent care with our diverse client populations and to practicing cultural humility through our lifelong pursuit of learning and understanding.

Happy ADHD Awareness Month! We’re here to debunk a few myths surrounding this often controversial disorder.

1) ADHD is just an excuse for being lazy: ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder, a condition that is due to differences in the development and function of the nervous system As a condition that is based in the brain, ADHD has little to do with willpower, laziness, bad parenting, or any other individual trait--it’s a real medical disorder.

2) ADHD is only in boys and young children: Girls, as well as trans and gender nonconforming individuals, are just as likely to have ADHD as boys! Additionally, 70% of children with ADHD continue to meet diagnostic criteria and struggle with the disorder in adolescence, and up to 50% continue this trend into adulthood.

3) People with ADHD are always hyperactive: There are actually three subtypes of ADHD: predominantly hyperactive-impulsive, predominantly inattentive, and combined type, all of which can have different presentations. For example, an individual with a predominantly inattentive presentation may appear to engage in more daydreaming or “zoning out.” which ultimately interferes with their day to day activities. Each person’s experience with ADHD is unique and different.

4) People with ADHD can never be successful. Just like any other disability, with proper management, people with ADHD can live long, healthy, and successful lives! Diagnosis isn’t a death sentence--in fact, it’s often the key to accessing treatment.

If you’re seeking an evaluation for ADHD, we recommend a professional psychological evaluation, like the ones offered at our clinic. Our empirically based screening and treatments can be the first step on the path to wellness for you or your loved ones!

For the next few months, the UNCG Psych Clinic page will be highlighting members of our clinic staff to show the amazing individuals that make up our care team and support staff. This month, we decided to interview one of our graduate student clinicians, Yuji Kim, a fifth year student of the UNCG Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program.

1) What's your favorite part of working at the clinic?
"My favorite part of working at the clinic is interacting with all the supervisors, clinicians, and staff members. We have a great team of individuals who care about each other, the work they do, and their clients. It's a very supportive and warm environment, so I enjoy having conversations and getting to know the team better. I also enjoy working with families at the clinic for therapy and assessment. It's rewarding to be able to help out parents and children with their needs and goals."

2) Are you seeking to specialize in any particular areas?
"Although I am not fully sure where my career is headed, I would love to continue working with families to provide both therapy and assessment services."

3) What would you tell someone hesitant about seeking mental health services?
"For someone hesitant about seeking mental health services, I would want them to know that our door is always open and even a single or a few sessions can help. We are committed to working collaboratively with clients to identify their needs to improve their well-being and mental health. They are not alone in this process and we are here to help them achieve their goals."

4)Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
"A fun fact about me is that I have a huge plant lover and I own 7 plants (each with their own names)."

Happy Monday, Everyone!

We are delighted to report that graduate student Cameron Pugach has won the UNCG Graduate School’s Outstanding Thesis Award for his thesis titled "Repertoires of Habitual Emotion Regulation Strategy Use in Trauma-Exposed Undergraduates: Associations with PTSD Symptoms and Emotional Awareness.” Cameron’s supervisor in the program is Dr. Blair Wisco.

The selection criteria for this award include the originality of the work, the quality and scope of presentation, and the potential for external recognition (i.e., publishable work in peer-reviewed academic journals).

About Cameron’s thesis:

Although there is substantial research showing that different kinds of emotion regulation strategies are associated with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the strategies are typically examined in isolation. Cameron’s thesis examined 11 strategies relevant to PTSD and showed that trauma-exposed individuals could be reliably classified into profiles that reflect their emotion regulation "styles." These profiles were differentially linked to PTSD symptom levels, which suggests that as researchers (and clinicians), we might benefit from attending to individuals' broader approaches to regulating their emotions, as opposed to any one specific strategy they might use. Further, these profiles were differentially linked to the extent to which people felt clear about their emotions, providing an important potential explanatory mechanism worthy of future study.”

The award comes with a recognition plaque and a cash prize. Congratulations! UNCG College of Arts & Sciences UNC Greensboro Graduate School UNCG Research
