Throughout her third year at the Derner Institute, Marie Barnett has mastered the art of multitasking to an especially impressive degree. In July 2012, Marie began a predoctoral fellowship position at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), which continues through August 2014. She is in the process of publishing her second year project, which is a qualitative study involving adolescent survivors of cancer, and has devoted her research to the experience of self-disclosure among young cancer survivors.
She has recently presented several posters; she presented “Parent and Peer Attachment Quality and Posttraumatic Growth among Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivors” at the Annual Meeting of the American Psychological Oncology Society in February; “Self-Disclosure of Cancer History in Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivors” at the Annual Meeting of the Eastern Psychological Association in March; and “Cancer-Related Self-Disclosure among Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivors” at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Behavioral Medicine in March, Adelphi Annual Research Conference in April, and the MSKCC Survivorship Research Symposium in May. She received the award for Outstanding Graduate Poster Presentation at the Adelphi Research Conference. Along with her work through MSKCC, Marie is an extern at Maimonides Medical Center and continues to see patients at Adelphi’s Center for Psychological Services.
