Davielle Lakind is a doctoral candidate in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), currently completing her internship in UIC’s Department of Psychiatry. Her work, broadly, focuses on the development and implementation of community-based supports for children and families in communities of poverty. She is particular interested in service models that support teachers, paraprofessional service providers, and other naturally occurring workforces in everyday settings so that they are positioned to best promote the mental health of the children and families with whom they come into contact. She has conducted qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research focused on paid youth mentors, early career teachers in urban elementary schools, and on parent participation in customizable school-based services delivered by paraprofessional community members. Davielle will be transitioning to a postdoctoral position at the University of South Carolina in Fall 2018, where she will be conducting research on family engagement in school-based mental health services.
