Graduate Student
Behavioral and Brain Sciences Program

Dominique La Barrie is a first-year graduate student in the Behavioral and Brain Sciences Ph.D. program, with a concentration in Developmental Psychology. She is currently a member of the FRESH lab at UGA. Dominique completed her Bachelors of Science at Georgia State University with a major in Psychology and a minor in Sociology in 2017. As an undergraduate she worked in GSU’s Developmental Lab, focusing on how typically developing toddlers, toddlers with autism and other developmental delays shared musical sounds with their parents via gesture and speech. After graduating, she was a research coordinator for the FANS lab at Emory University, assisting on a clinical intervention examining the effects of mindful meditation on dissociative symptoms of trauma. She also served as research coordinator of Carter Lab at Georgia State University, examining racial health disparities and the impact of high trauma exposure on families. These experiences lead to the development of her broad interest of trauma effects on the family unit. Specifically, her main interests include intergenerational trauma and how it affects family relationships, racial socialization, parent child dyadic relationships, and child internalizing disorders. Ultimately, she hopes to examine family relationships and how specific factors impact them.
