Patrick Michaels

Ever since he was a high school senior, Patrick Michaels, now an IIT Institute of Psychology doctoral student, had one dream: to become a clinical psychologist. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin–Madison with a B.S. in psychology, Michaels enrolled at IIT, where he found the Clinical Psychology Program offered just the right balance of hands-on work and research he was seeking. It was at the institute that Michaels realized his dream would come true. “Living my dream makes me thankful that the professors, physicians, psychologists, researchers, and employers with whom I have worked have seen potential in me and helped me to achieve this dream,” says Michaels. “Not only am I pursuing my dream of being a clinical psychologist, but I am at an institution where the career preparation synthesizes theory, concepts, and practice.”

As a graduate student, Michaels feels fortunate to have participated in the Chicago Public Schools Gifted and Enriched Program, where he administered, proctored, and scored individual and group achievement tests for pre-kindergarteners and children ages 6–8. “The program helped me relate to children and become a better public speaker,” he explains. Made possible through the Institute of Psychology’s Center for Research and Service, the contract program provided Michaels with both excellent experience and financial support.

Michaels and his advisor, Professor Patrick Corrigan, are currently working on a consulting project evaluating an educational workshop that combats the stigma of mental illness. They are particularly interested in what the workshop can offer to both consumers and providers of mental health services.
