How to cope with trauma and conflict per Sarah Beth Kirk

Dr. Sarah Beth Kirk talks with Karl Brooks and Radio Active Magazine regular Spencer Graves about how people can more effectively cope with trauma and conflict. Kirk is Director of the Psychological Clinic at the University of Kansas and Associate Director of their Clinical Psychology Program.

She is particularly interested in evidence-based treatments, using data to improve the quality of the therapy they offer. This includes pursuing anti-racism and diversity, equity, and inclusion goals while evaluating the alternative assessment tools and psychological approaches. It also includes altering or abandoning many traditional approaches with racist and sexist roots.

Dr. Kirk received the Bernadette Gray-Little “Expanding the Reach” award from the Emily Taylor Center at the University of Kansas (KU) in 2019. This award recognizes contributions to campus recruitment and retention efforts through their work to promote gender equity and campus diversity.

Dr. Kirk also received the John C. Wright Outstanding Graduate Mentor Award at KU in 2019. In 2011 she received an Award for Teaching Excellence.
