About Justin Preston
Justin is a graduate student at UMass Boston’s Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program. Hailing from Ada, Ohio, he completed his undergraduate studies at Connecticut College with a degree in Psychology. Later, he received his Master’s in Human Development and Social Intervention from New York University’s Steinhardt School in New York City. Justin’s research interests travel along two interrelated tracks: the long-term impacts of mass trauma on mental health and the ways that social support and interpersonal relationships can be used to transition from relief to recovery, and the use of mentoring as a context for fostering social inclusion in community settings domestically and internationally. His clinical interests include working with youth and adults who have experienced trauma and other adverse experiences.
