Erin Tahvonen

I am currently in my second year in the Clinical Psychology program here at Ball State. My focus to this point has been on development in terms of personality. Most specifically, I conducted research for my undergraduate thesis on the development of narcissism. However, I am interested in a variety of personality traits and psychopathology. Previous experience includes working in a treatment-based detention facility for adolescent males, as well as working with adults in prison and on parole.

My current internship is in an adult inpatient unit that provides crisis stabilization at an Indianapolis hospital. I absolutely love working in this setting, and would like to explore psychosis more empirically in the future.
