Questions about our materials? Contact Dr. Schleider for more information.
All of our lab's materials are free for use by teens, families, researchers, and clinicians.
For Kids, Families, and Therapists
Kids ages 11-17 are invited to take part in Project YES: our lab's anonymous, online program evaluation project for youth. Project YES participants can try out three of our online programs for free!
Parents of children ages 3-13 are invited to take part in Project EMPOWER: our lab's anonymous, online program for caregivers. Project EMPOWER participants can try an online parenting program for free!
**Note: People of any age are welcome to take part in Project YES and Project EMPOWER. However, the activities in YES were developed with teens and pre-teens in mind, and Project EMPOWER was created with parents of children ages 3-13 in mind.
For Researchers and Clinicians
Our lab's Open Science Framework page contains slides from recent talks and conference presentations, materials from ongoing research projects, information for lab members, and professional development resources. Highlights include:
- Our Lab Manual: Policies, expectations, and goals for all Lab for Scalable Mental Health members. This is a living document and is updated periodically.
- Our Single-Session Online Programs: Scientists from other labs, or clinicians of any kind, are welcome to use our online, single-session intervention materials in their own work. Materials for three of our interventions are available below:
- Our Single-Session Therapist-Delivered Intervention: Materials for the Single-Session Consultation for Emotional and Behavioral Health, based on principles from solution-focused brief therapy, are available on Open Science Framework, including an intervention protocol, training slides for clinicians, and an "action plan" worksheet for clients.
- Our lab's Social Media Research Network (co-founded by Lab Coordinators Chantelle Roulston, BA and Akash Shroff BS) created a Social Media Research Toolkit to support scientists interested in using social media to recruit young people and their parents into scientific studies.
For Applicants to Clinical Psychology Doctoral Programs (and their Advisors)
- FAQs: Applying to Join the Lab for Scalable Mental Health as a PhD Student. I created this document to guide prospective clinical psychology PhD students considering our lab. It includes information about assessing your 'fit' to our lab, how GPAs and GREs are considered in the application process, and what to include in your personal statement.
- Examples of Clinical Psychology Personal Statements. This document includes a number of real examples (including mine!) of personal statements written for applications to clinical psychology PhD programs.
- Open Access Tips/Materials for Clinical Psych PhD Applicants, provided by Mallory Dobias, B.S. A collection of open-access pointers, timelines, and materials—from sample e-mails to prospective advisors to 'before' and 'after' personal statements—from a PhD student in our lab!
- So You Want to Go to Clinical Psych Grad School? ...Or Something? Slides from a lecture I made for Stony Brook undergraduates on considering careers in clinical psychology and allied disciplines. Includes info about different career options and degrees; preparing to apply for PhD programs; and how to obtain research and clinical experience.
