Christopher Durall

Christopher G. Durall is majoring in psychology at Eastern Washington University. He is passionate about his education in psychology and humanities, and is enthusiastic to study personality, mood, and anxiety disorders. His McNair research internship will concentrate on the study of shifting identity self-concepts in persons who have recovered from substance abuse.

Christopher was born and raised in Yakima, WA and is a first generation college student that has overcome numerous obstacles to accomplish what he has today. With the support of his family, he was encouraged to return to school where he discovered a strong interest and desire to pursue the field of psychology. He has consistently made the Dean's List and  he is a member of honor societies: Psi Chi and Phi Kappa Phi. Christopher has worked his way through school at Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest as a truck driver for the last four years. In addition, he completed an internship for the Homeless and Incarcerated Veterans Program, a federally funded program supported by Goodwill. After graduation, Christopher will continue his education in pursuit of a doctorate in applied psychology to become a mental health counselor, to help treat individuals that suffer from mental illness and impart to them that they are not alone and there is empathetic support out there.
