Marilyn Franklin graduated from New York University with her B.A. in
psychology, and subsequently earned her MSW from the Hunter College School of Social Work.  After working as a clinical social worker at the Adolescent Health Center at Mount Sinai Medical Center, she entered the doctoral program in Clinical Psychology at Wayne State University. She obtained her M.A. in psychology after completing a thesis related to cortisol patterns among African-American youth with a history of childhood sexual abuse. Her clinical and research interests focus on mental health treatment among low-income African-American adolescents. Her long term professional interests revolve around improving mental health treatment and increasing utilization of mental health services within this population. Marilyn will begin her pre-doctoral internship this fall at the Hawthorn Center, which is a children’s psychiatric hospital that provides intense inpatient services for youth across Michigan.
