Joining the Lab
A central focus of this lab is providing students with applied research experiences in real-world settings. There are several ways to join the Psychology, Law, & Trauma Lab - all of which start with contacting Dr. Zelechoski to talk through your interest and availability, as well as the current needs of the lab. Depending on your academic program and status, you may even be able to obtain course credit (i.e., PSY 495, PSY 496, COUN 695) for your work in the lab. In addition to working with the lab on projects during the academic year, there are also typically opportunities to gain research experience during the summer. You are encouraged to email Dr. Zelechoski to inquire about current or future research opportunities.
