- Honours Student
Natasha Jain is currently completing her final year of a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at the University of New South Wales, under the supervision of A/Prof Kimonis. Her project involves developing and validating a new parent-report questionnaire for measuring empathy in young children aged between 2 and 8 years old. As empathy has an important role in social, emotional, and behavioural functioning, she aims to use this tool to help identify children that are showing atypical levels, so that potential deficits may be remedied.
Following the completion of her degree, Natasha aims to practice as a Clinical Psychologist. Thus, she is interested in completing either a Master of Psychology (Clinical) or a combined PhD/Masters in Psychology (Clinical).
In the future, Natasha is especially interested in working with children and adolescents. Her ultimate goal is to provide this population with the language and courage to discuss the problems they are facing and to give them access to various tools which can help to overcome these issues.
