The Ted Jones Excellence in Professional Psychology Award

KAPA congratulates the 2024 recipient of the Ted Jones Excellence in Professional Psychology Award, Caterina Obenauf.

Caterina is a third year PhD student in Counseling Psychology at the University of Tennessee. Her clinical and research interests are in trauma and posttraumatic stress and their effects of physical and cognitive health, and her dissertation is on the impact of adverse, traumatic, and positive childhood experiences on neuropsychological symptoms among adults with Multiple Sclerosis.

Caterina will be pursuing a Certified Psychological Assistant designation within the state of Tennessee to receive training as a psychometrist at Knox Neuropsychology, supervised by Dr. Amber Rochette. This award will cover the expenses related to pursuing this designation. With this designation, Caterina can take on her own neuropsychological assessment cases and gain experience in geriatric clinical neuropsychology.
