Hello there! My name is Jake, I am currently a senior at The Ohio State University majoring in Psychology. I'm also originally from the Chicago Metro area (sweet home, Chicago!).
I am a Research Assistant in Dr. Mary Fristad's Childhood Mood Disorders Lab at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I manage data, code therapy videos for therapist adherence to the Individual-Family Psychoeducation Psychotherapy (IF-PEP) Manual used for the Omega-3 and Therapy Study (OATS) and I supervise children while the parents are with the interviewer.
I am almost fluent in American Sign Language and I do enjoy learning about Deaf Culture and the Deaf Community and I may go to interpreting school to be certified as an ASL Interpreter.
This is a blog about my field, Psychology, and I also post fun/interesting things ranging from Deaf Culture, 1980's/90's videos, etc.
Thank you for this post. Very enlightening.
