Academic Areas of Interest

Dr. Paquin researches the active ingredients of change in group therapy interventions, with a special focus on group practice with traditionally marginalized and underserved populations. She also studies group leadership – in the therapy context but also in workplace settings – and how social identities, bias, and gendered expectations of leaders play a role in how women and men are perceived as leaders. Her orientation to clinical work is integrative and informed by interpersonal-relational frameworks, third-wave behavioral approaches, multiculturalism and feminist therapy. She specializes in group therapy practice, and has a special interest in working with clients on the trauma and PTSD spectrum, women, and traditionally underserved and/or marginalized populations.

Personal Areas of Interest
