Dr. Vaughn Shares Advice for Dissertation Writing on the No Margins Podcast

In the Media | 08.05.21

Marsha Vaughn, Ph.D., Professor for the Chicago Campus Couple and Family Therapy department, recently joined Elaine J. Roberts on the “No Margins” podcast. The podcast explores conversations about the writing process of each guest. Dr. Vaughn discussed how she guides students through the dissertation process in the doctoral program. 

“I have been intentional on changing the language [with my students] of “What’s your dissertation topic?” to “What do you want to become an expert in?” or “What do you want to be known for?” Dr. Vaughn said.  

Dr. Vaughn also shared how she helps her students refine their writing style. “I was told you don’t write a paper, you re-write a paper, and so your first draft is not your best draft, and so I think it’s the revision process and self-editing where a lot of the harder work is,” she said.

Listen to the “No Margins” podcast episode, “Marsha Vaughn, Ph.D., LMFT. Professor and Core Faculty at Adler University.”
