At UDEM, I experienced whole-person education first hand. During my course of study, not only did I learn about Psychology, since my program was flexible, and I was able to personalize it, I took some courses in Differential Calculus, Literature, and World Politics.
Thanks to the broad offer of extracurricular courses, I also had the opportunity to learn about dance, guitar, and the theater. I participated in student groups, went to Canada on an exchange program, did internships in various organizations, and provided support as a psychologist at a community center.
Just like many, I started my degree in Psychology with the mission of helping others, but in the end, I got a lot more. During the years that I studied at UDEM, I was taught to learn beyond classes and books; I was led to ask myself the right questions to discover my professional ambitions through projects and social service.
During my LPS studies at UDEM, I learned about methodology, diagnosis, and intervention from some amazing professors. This, jointly with the different internships and practicums offered by the program, strengthened my preparation to be able to develop as a researcher at the international level.
I am currently developing my post-doctorate at the University of Trier, in Germany. There, I teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels and I carry out research with a focus on developing motivation in the school sphere.
Pursuing the LPSC program at UDEM was an extremely enriching experience that allowed me to grow and develop, thanks to the knowledge and dedication of my professors and to the numerous opportunities for practice that the University provided me with. I can say that I acquired the clinical sensitivity and theory necessary to set up a private psychoanalytic clinical practice, which I have been running for three years.
I believe that the most significant thing I learned during the LPSC program was how to listen beyond what is said and pay attention to what is not evident at plain sight. I leaned to see what is hidden, ask questions, and be curious.
