Sara Babad, M.A., is a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at Queens College, CUNY. She researches the long-term social-emotional impact of adverse childhood experiences and insecure attachment styles associated with revictimization. Clinically, she conducts neuropsychological evaluations and therapeutic interventions in hospital and outpatient settings. When she isn’t working, Sara enjoys being outdoors, hiking, biking, and camping. She also enjoys being a devoted aunt to her nieces and is frequently getting in trouble for sneaking them too much candy.
Sara has spent the past few years teaching statistics in the social sciences. Sara has always been passionate about incirporating writing and reading in to her curriculum. She is therefore excited to be part of the Writing at Queens team this year, where she has the opportunity to enhance her understanding of reading and writing across the curriculum and to share her appreciation of writing with others. Specifically, together with her fellow fellows she is developing a series of workshops for undergraduates to strengthen their understanding of and appreciation for reading and writing in the social sciences.
