Clinical Psychology Graduate Student
Rachel Wiedeman is Clinical Psychology graduate student at The University of Tulsa. Rachel’s research interests are traumatic exposure, aggression, juvenile delinquency, and her clinical interest is in working with adolescents and adults involved in the criminal justice system. Rachel is one of two graduate students working with the Women in Recovery, which is a jail diversion program in Tulsa for women with substance abuse problems.
Rachel is currently working on a TITAN study examining parenting skills, trauma histories and symptoms, and mental health symptoms of women in the Women in Recovery program. Women in Recovery provides intensive outpatient treatment focused on addiction, trauma, and parenting. As part of this project, Rachel is examining long term clinical outcomes exhibited across the course of treatment for the women, with specific attention to the timing of improvement across different areas.
“My involvement with TITAN has provided a great opportunity to do hands on clinical research with an ongoing and continually evolving treatment program.”
