Cicchetti interviewed by APS as a Champion of Psychology

Dante CicchettiThe Association of Psychological Science's (APS) Champions of Psychology now includes APS Fellow Dante Cicchetti, McKnight Presidential Chair, William Harris Professor of Child Development and Psychiatry, who was interviewed by the APS Student Caucus in the November edition of the APS Observer. Dante spoke about his career and gave some advice to current graduate students in the field.

The discussion ranged from the type of research Cicchetti is planning to how graduate students can make their way in collaborating with their colleagues in an increasingly interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary field to how to keep balance in your personal life.

"As a graduate student," Dante said, "it is important to know yourself. I would hate to discourage anyone who has a broad focus because they may have the ability to develop more integrative models, research programs, and methods." He added, "I stress that it is critical to find your passion. I believe that this will help students embark on a path to research success."
