PhD Candidate

Bep N. Uink

In 2012 I completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honors, 1A) at Murdoch University, Western Australia. Throughout my undergraduate degree I spent nine months working with families and children in crisis at the state Child Protection agency. I received an Australian Postgraduate Award in 2013 which allowed me to study at a postgraduate level. I am currently studying a combined Master of Applied Psychology (Clinical)/PhD at the School of Psychology & Exercise Science. My dissertation research has taken place through the ‘How Do You Feel’ project, which utilizes smartphones to deliver Experience Sampling Method (ESM) surveys to socio-educationally ‘at-risk’ youth.  I am interested in the intersection between socio-economic risk and externalizing psychopathology, and how these external and internal liabilities interact to compromise youths’ ability to react, respond, and recover adaptively to stressors encountered in day-to-day life. My clinical work spans assessment, intervention and evaluation of evidence-based treatments to assist individuals and families.
