Dr. Friedman-Yakoobian is the clinic director of the Center for Early Detection, Assessment and Response to Risk Clinic for youth ages 12-30 who are showing signs of clinical high risk (possible prodrome) for psychosis. Her program of research has focused on the development and implementation of effective psychosocial interventions for individuals experiencing psychosis (or signs of risk) and their families. These have included family interventions, cognitive remediation, school and work coaching, and acceptance and commitment therapy. Students with interest in these areas may have opportunities to contribute to literature searches and contributing to data analysis to explore a variety of topics related to treating and assessing youth at clinical high risk for psychosis and their families. We have a growing dataset of quality assurance data collected in the clinic on demographics and symptoms as well as engagement in treatment.
