Lab members are engaged in independent research in an interdependent context. Project content is in parenting, cultural values, microaggressions, and evidence-based interventions.

Tish Hicks


Elizabeth Tish Hicks is a doctoral student in the Combined Clinical/Counseling Psychology program at Utah State University. Tish completed her BA in Psychology with a minor in Global Studies at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, and studied abroad at Univerzita Karlova in Prague, Czech Republic. Broadly, she is interested in contributing to the development, implementation, and evaluation of interventions to increase cultural competence and reduce the impact of prejudice on behavior, as well as in raising awareness of power and privilege, implicit biases, and microaggressions to promote ally behavior. She is also interested in examining the utility of including third-wave cognitive behavioral techniques (e.g. acceptance, mindfulness, values-based approaches) in these interventions. In addition to research activities, she is passionate about teaching, clinical work, and community advocacy. In her free time, she loves traveling, hiking, live music, engaging in social justice activism, and spending time with friends & family.
