Yasmine Daugherty is a first year Clinical Psychology Master’s student at UCCS. She received her B.A. in Neuroscience and Psychology with an emphasis in Mental Health from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2020. Under the mentorship of Dr. Colin Mahoney, she hopes to learn more about the intersection of disorders and in what contexts such comorbid relationships may develop, progress, and diminish.
Yasmine is primarily interested in mental disorder comorbidity, developmental psychopathology, and intergenerational trauma. She is also interested in substance use disorders, neuropsychopharmacology, self-efficacy & locus of control, resilience in the context of trauma, affect modulation and psychopathology in children and adolescents, and the implications of inequities (i.e. socioeconomic hardship, racial/gender/sexuality/disability discrimination, etc.) and public health issues on mental wellbeing and the accessibility of psychological wellness resources.
