Ben W. Bellet, M.S.

Biographical Sketch

Benjamin Bellet completed a terminal Masters in the General Psychology Program. He is currently working towards his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Harvard University. His research interests include the etiology and alternative assessment models of trauma and loss-related disorders, including PTSD and complicated grief. As a former active duty and current national guard U.S. Army infantry officer, Ben is particularly interested in these issues as they pertain to the veteran population. Ben is also interested in the determinants of different outcomes in response to stressful life events in general, including both symptomatology and post-traumatic growth. In the development of this interest, Ben's master's thesis addresses the roles of event centrality and personal meaning made in determining resultant symptomatology.
