NESTT operates out of a clinical psychology doctoral training clinic, Vermont Psychological Services at the University of Vermont.  As a result, we have many opportunities to empirically test various research questions pertaining to our clinical, social work case management, and legal work.  Using the close guidance of the Institutional Review Board at the University of Vermont and with the highest regard for protection of our clients, we conduct a research program.
