Caitlin Courchesne is a PhD student studying Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology) at Simon Fraser University. Using a patient oriented research approach, her dissertation work is centred on the co-development and implementation of an affordable, accessible, and scalable mental health intervention for adults with persistent post-concussion symptoms (PPCS). The Council of Canadian Departments of Psychology Professional Development Award has enabled her to present her research progress at the Canadian Traumatic Brain Injury Research Consortium (CTRC), a biannual meeting of clinician-scientists and patient partners who share the aim of improving PPCS care through interdisciplinary collaboration and trainee development. Presenting at this conference has enabled Caitlin to expand awareness of the mental health needs of those facing psychosocial adversity after concussion, enhance her communication skills, and collaborate with leading experts in the field of traumatic brain injury.
