Haley Goldenthal, M.A.
Graduate Research Assistant
Hayley Goldenthal joined the Center for Childhood Resilience in 2016. Her experience centers on community and school-based mental health research. Prior to joining the CCR team, Ms. Goldenthal previously worked as the project coordinator at a NCTSN site focusing on the assessment and treatment of youth who have experienced trauma and/or bereavement. Her research interests lie in the development and implementation of interventions for underserved youth who may experience significant life stressors and/or trauma. Specifically, she is interested in reducing risk and promoting resilience pathways for these youth through the application of evidence-based, sustainable, and ecologically valid interventions to society’s most formative institutions (schools, communities, hospitals). She also conducted school-based research on promoting academic persistence and achievement, particularly within underserved communities at the University of Pennsylvania.
Ms. Goldenthal holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan, and a master’s degree in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. She is currently completing a PhD in Clinical Psychology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.
