One extra credit opportunity. If you participate the following research experiment, I will award 5 points to be added onto the 500-points in total that this course evaluates. The deadline for participation is April 21.

My name is Kat Margiotta and I'm a senior psychology major. This semester, I will be conducting a research project under Dr. Wood's supervision titled "Approaches to Educating Individuals About Trauma-Informed Care" for my departmental honors thesis. Students interested in participating can contact me at for more information or to schedule a session. Participants will receive $12.50 or extra credit as compensation, depending on professor policies. Here is the flyer for this research project.
