PSY Students Present Research at APA
The psychology department had a troop of PSY students working in Dr. Lovell’s Child Health and Wellness Lab; Dr. Valdez’s Trauma Outcomes and Recovery Lab; and the Service Learning Lab (co-mentored by Dr. Lovell and Dr. Valdez) attend the American Psychological Association Annual Convention in San Francisco in August 2018 to present cutting-edge research in the areas of education, trauma psychology, and multiculturalism.
Two students presented at the Division 2 (Society for the Teaching of Psychology) and Division 56 (Trauma Psychology) poster sessions:
Rebekah Newman: "What do students want from psychology service learning?" (Service Learning Lab)
Katrina Conen: "Investigating trauma, mental health, and posttraumatic growth among ex-gang members" (TOAR Lab)
Jazmin Luna, Jorge Cabrera, Shelby Carrillo, Nicollette Clark, Jennifer Hatch, and Danielle Riquetti presented as part of a 2-hour symposium with Dr. Lovell. The presentation was titled Feminist research mentorship with racial/ethnic minority and first-generation undergraduate students. Co-presenters included Dr. Jeanett Castellanos and Dr. Kevin Nadal. Jazmin Luna did an excellent job presenting data and providing tips for mentors. We are proud of our PSY student researchers!
