Our Secret Agent Society: Operation Regulation (SAS:OR) Program team consists of primarily clinical-developmental psychology trainees, post-doctoral fellows, and research assistants. Please contact Dr. Jonathan Weiss (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in joining the team!
|I've had the opportunity to be involved in SAS:OR program for 5 years as leader. I'm a PhD student in Dr. Weiss' research lab, and I'm researching coping and wellbeing in parents/caregivers of children with autism.|
Also a SAS:OR therapist and assessor
|I joined the SAS:OR program in 2017 as a leader and supervisor. I'm a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Jonathan Weiss' research lab. My post-doctoral work at York University will be focused on intervention approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy for adolescents with autism.|
|I'm a PhD student in Dr. Weiss' lab, and I've had the opportunity to be involved in SAS:OR as a researcher, therapist, and clinical supervisor. My research is focused on parent involvement in mental health treatment for children with autism.|
Aso a SAS:OR therapist
|I am a MA student in Dr. Weiss' lab. I am interested in the role of emotion regulation processes in the mental health of individuals with developmental disabilities, and how these processes can inform treatment across the lifespan. I am also interested in how physiological arousal may be associated with emotion regulation and help predict treatment outcomes for individuals with autism.|
Aso a SAS:OR therapist
|I'm a PhD student in Dr. Weiss' lab, and I've had the opportunity to be involved in SAS:OR program for the past 5 years as a researcher and a therapist. My research is focused on the relationship children have with their therapist and the importance of this relationship for treatment outcomes in therapy for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities.
|I'm a research assistant in Dr. Weiss' lab. My current research interests include exploring the factors that influence emotion regulation development in children with developmental disabilities. I am also interested in program evaluation that focuses on increasing strengths and that incorporates the perspectives and experiences of those with developmental disabilities and their families.|
Also a SAS:OR therapist
|I'm a PhD student in Dr. Weiss' lab and I've been involved with the SAS:OR program for 3 years. My research is focused on understanding how pathways in the brain are involved in emotion regulation for children with neurodevelopmental conditions, and how these pathways are related to treatment response. I'm also investigating whether using advanced neuroimaging methods in addition to behavioural reports can help us to predict which children are most likely to respond to SAS:OR, and why.|
|I've been working as a research assistant in Dr. Weiss' lab since June 2016. I'm excited to be starting my MA in the Fall of 2019 to continue my work in the SAS:OR Program, and researching emotion regulation, mindfulness and mental health in children with neurodevelopmental disabilities.|
|I’m a research assistant in Dr. Weiss’ Lab. I have always been passionate about exploring the factors influencing emotion regulation in children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, investigating parental involvement in youths’ mental health treatments, as well as developing my clinical skills. I am thrilled to be a member of the SAS:OR team!|
|I'm a research assistant in Dr. Weiss' lab. I enjoy working with children and youth in clinical and research settings. My research interests include mental health issues in children with autism and their impact on families. I am excited to be joining the team!|
|I have been working as the lab coordinator for Dr. Weiss's lab and the SAS:OR program since June 2016. Being a part of this research lab has provided me with many opportunities to develop my clinical skills, as well as explore mental health and wellbeing in families of children with neurodvelopmental disabilities. I'm interested in implementing and evaluating programs, like SAS:OR, in the community.|
I'm a MA student in the Clinical-Developmental Psychology, Clinical Neuropsychology stream. My research explores the neurodevelopment of young children exposed prenatally to substances, with a special consideration of the cumulative risk and protective factors that these children are exposed to. My work is embedded at Breaking the Cycle, an identification and prevention program that reduces risk and enhances development in substance-exposed children, with an overall focus on the mother-child relationship and early intervention.
|I'm a MA student in the Clinical-Developmental Neuropsychology program. My research looks at new ways of measuring executive functions in children with neurodevelopmental conditions, such as ADHD. I have a background in education and teaching, where I spent a lot of time working in special education classrooms with students of all ages and challenges. I am so excited to be a member of the amazing SAS:OR team!|
|I am a doctoral student at York in the Clinical-Developmental Psychology program. My research looks at family experiences (parent and siblings) of children with complex neurological, medical needs. I currently serve on the Family Advisory Committee at Holland Bloorview Rehabilitation Hospital. I currently work part-time at the Hospital for Sick Children conducting research with families and children experiencing complex mental and physical health challenges. I live in Toronto with my husband, two young children, and my cat, Logan!|
|I am a PhD student in the Clinical Developmental Psychology Program at York University. My research focuses on adolescent development and mental health with a central focus on interpersonal relationships, specifically peer groups and romantic relationships. I am very excited to be joining the SAS-OR team!|
|I am a Master's student in the Clinical Developmental Neuropsychology program. My graduate research looks at how executive functions develop and interact with symptoms of inattention and impulsivity in young people over time. Currently, I work part-time at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health doing research assessments with teenagers and young adults with ASD and mental health challenges. I am delighted to be a part of the SAS:OR team!|
|I am a PhD Student in Clinical-Developmental Psychology at York University. My research studies how parents help infants and toddlers develop emotion regulation skills. In my free time, she loves baking, playing soccer, and reading.|
|I am currently completing MA in Clinical Developmental Neuropsychology and is working towards a PhD.
