Jeffrey Karst earned his PhD from Marquette's Clinical Psychology program in August of 2014.  During his time at Marquette under the supervision of Dr. Van Hecke, Jeffrey focused his research on parent and family outcomes of autism interventions and the reciprocal benefit of parent improvement on child functioning.  His dissertation project, funded through the Raynor Fellowship and grants from the Organization for Autism Research and Marquette Forward Thinking program, looked at parent and family outcomes of the PEERS social skills intervention. Jeffrey completed his predoctoral internship at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL and is now a postdoctoral fellow in pediatric Hematology/Oncology/BMT at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
