Katherine Kelton

She currently is an intern at the Durham VA Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina and a doctoral candidate in the Clinical Psychology and Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) dual degree program at St. Louis University (SLU). Her program of research has been heavily informed by her clinical experiences and follows the common thread of the intersections of multiculturism, trauma, marginalized groups, and systems issues.  Specifically, she is interested in the ways trauma disrupts the mind-body connection, as well as how potentially traumatic events can play a role in the pathway to involvement in the criminal legal system.  To this end, she is interested in posttraumatic stress symptoms as a target of intervention for re-entry. Additionally, she is interested in how treatments are developed and evaluated for underserved groups, and how programs are sustained in spaces with few resources
