Hi Dr. Riggs,

The weTHRIVE Lab is still looking for a graduate research assistant to help with our Supervisor Support and Emotion Regulation Skills Program with first responders. This is a PAID position and is a great way to gain experience with conducting group work. More information on the program and position are below as well as in the attached flyer. Would you please share this with psychmasters?

Supervisor Support and Emotion Regulation Skills Program Among First Responders
This project was developed in response to a previous research study that was conducted to examine mental health within first responders. We found that, in line with previous research, our participants had higher rates of mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and harmful drinking behaviors. We developed a two-part program (supervisor support and individual skills training) to provide first responders with the skills and training they need to mitigate the psychological consequences of the unique stressors they experience (e.g., critical incidents, work stress, etc.). With support from Dr. Matthias Berking, we will be using an adapted version of the Affect Regulation Training Manual (Berking & Schwarz, 2014) as our skills-based intervention. This is a relatively brief emotion regulation skills training that has previously been shown to be effective amongst law enforcement communities. We plan to evaluate the effectiveness of a modified version of this intervention in Texas first responders and provide services to a vulnerable population.?

Position: MA/PHD student (1 paid position at .25 (10 hours a week) or .50 time (20 hours a week))

Thank you!
