My name is Jessica Hamilton and this web page is my class project for History and Systems of Psychology. The class is taught by Jennifer Lundgren, Ph.D. at the University of Missouri-Kansas City as a requirement for the Clinical Psychology Program. I hope to complete my Ph.D. in May of 2012!!! I did my undergraduate work at Park University, where I graduated with a B.A. in psychology (2005). My research interest include emotion regulation in children and adolescents and the impact of trauma. Specifically I have looked maltreatment, and I am currently focusing on pain as types of truamas children and adolescents can sustain. Tamera B. Murdock, Ph.D. is my academic mentor and has helped throughout my academic career. I hope this web page pleases her and the rest of my family tree.
