Carolyn Bazan is currently pursuing a PhD degree in Counselor Education and Supervision at Rutgers University. Her past work includes serving as a clinician and project manager on “Treating hidden barriers to employment: Integrated treatment for PTSD in supported employment”, a research study funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research under the mentorship of Dr. Weili Lu. Her work during this time has allowed her to gain an understanding of the barriers clinicians face when serving individuals with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder as well as the symptoms that interfere with this population’s ability to seek and maintain employment. Her research interest includes examining the intersection of trauma, addiction, and spirituality. Carolyn is excited to be a part of the TRACC-RU program and contribute to the research concerning addiction and traumatic stress.
