From the Clinical Psychology PhD at Seattle Pacific University website:

Coursework is grounded in empirical literature that examines the interplay among biological, psychological, and social factors related to human adjustment. This bio-psychosocial perspective infuses all aspects of the doctoral curriculum and training experiences.

Bakima will graduate from EWU in 2023, majoring in Psychology through the Honors Program. For her 2022 Summer Research Internship, Bakima worked with Dr. Jillene Seiver on a research project titled Growth in Adults through the Covid-19 Pandemic. Bakima has seven years of experience in professional life coaching, mediation, and end-of-life facilitation applications. In counseling, her aim is to educate clients on self-advocacy and somatic approaches to healing. We know she will bring rigorous and nuanced study to any graduate program she attends, and go on to a fulfilling career in clinical psychology research and practice.
