M.Sc. in Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology Stream)
Karley-Dale is a fourth-year doctoral student in Clinical Psychology (neuropsychology stream) at the University of Victoria. She also completed her Bachelor of Science Honours degree and her Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology (neuropsychology stream) at the University of Victoria.
She is particularly interested in the relationship between the brain and behaviour and the role of early developmental trauma in brain development and child and youth mental health. Her clinical focus is on assessment and diagnosis of complex developmental and behavioural conditions, including fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). She also has four years of experience as a behaviour interventionist working with children and youth with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and/or other developmental difference.
Karley-Dale’s research has focused primarily on investigating the influences of various factors (e.g., ADHD, personality, and anxiety) on prospective memory performance (i.e., the ability to remember to remember) in individuals across the lifespan. Her secondary research interest is in developing more valid, real-life measures of prospective memory. In her free time, she enjoys being active outdoors, going to the gym, and spending time with her pets.
