Alexandra Alfaro & Paula Boros
Nova Southeastern University, USA
Alexandra Alfaro is currently pursuing PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy at Nova Southeastern University, USA. She comes from a heavily systemic background, which shows itself through her keen attention to contextual layers. As she cultivates her background in research, she has become interested in the overlap of mental health and current social issues. Most recently, she has directed her attention toward linkages between mental health and military service.
Paula Boros is currently a Marriage and Family Therapy PhD student at Nova Southeastern University and a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern. Her background is in systemic theory and application from a postmodern perspective, which is demonstrated through contextual layers and understanding. Her research background thus far focuses on social justice issues and mental health concerns, from a systemic application. Her current attention is focusing on the military service population and mental health. By further understanding this population and bringing attention to these topics, she is able to consider future research, which will be clinically relevant to the population and the field.
