Alexandra Zax - Clinical Child Psychology​

Alexandra Zax is a first-year graduate student in the Clinical Child Psychology Program. In graduate school she hopes to explore how trauma exposure during childhood may confer risk for negative outcomes, and how interventions may mitigate these developmental pathways. Moreover, she is interested in the connections between cultural factors, adversity, and the resiliency that can underlie the human experience.
