For my senior thesis, I chose a project that joins together three very important aspects of my undergraduate experience: Psychology, Sociology, and Women's Issues. I designed a research project in which all three interests could be explored. Having a strong support network and agency connections in Philadelphia, I chose to study the effects of group therapy for abused women at a feminist counseling agency, Women In Transition (WIT). I decided not to do a research project focusing on abuse; my interests lie in the interaction between individuals, the community, and I was more interested in how theoretical models applied to real life situations. I previously worked at this agency as a student worker for four months and in that time learned a great deal about what women experience in abusive situations. At the time of creating my project I wanted experience working in the field to see if this were something I wanted to pursue when I finished school. Plus I also wanted my work to be beneficial to the agency by helping WIT improve their program.
