About Christine Kerrigan

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology as well as a specialized Master of Science degree in Critical Incident Management from Saint Leo University. My specialized Master’s degree allows for unique insight into the spectrum of critical incident management, the scope of critical incident management, as well as the impact that critical incidents can have on the field of psychology. I am currently in the last half of my Ph.D. program at Grand Canyon University for Cognitive Psychology. I also have been certified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in regards to their Professional Developmental Series. I currently live and teach in Massachusetts. In my free time I avidly rock climb, kayak, and backpack. My research interests include evaluating the impact of cognitive functions based upon outdoor experiences as well as research into the Flynn effect as it relates to alterations in IQ levels as an individual increases in age.
