Whitney Morean

Adjustment after Stroke in Young Adulthood: Research, Clinical Implications, and Personal Reflections (Spring, 2020)

Speaker:  Whitney Morean, SPU Doctoral Student

Bio: Whitney is a third year clinical psychology doctoral student at Seattle Pacific University. Her interest in providing psychological support for those living with chronic illness and disability has been largely influenced by her personal experiences after an idiopathic hemorrhagic stroke at age 28.  Whitney wants to become the provider she wishes she and her family would have had.  Her experience gives her unique insight into the complexity that comes from a life altering medical condition and has fueled her desire to become a rehabilitation psychologist.
