Psych Students Present at SWPA

Psychology Conference ParticipantsThe University of St. Thomas Psychology Department was well represented at the 59th Southwestern Psychological Association Annual Meeting on April 5-7 in Fort Worth, Texas. Sixteen students and three faculty members presented research that addressed important health and societal issues.

Among the many presentations, SWPA's annual meeting offered many opportunities for continuing education sessions, workshops, symposia and invited talks. SWPA prides itself on serving the psychological community by providing access to scientific advances and professional development within a collegial atmosphere.

UST student participants included Nick Boras, Maria Castenell, Lindsey Cortner, Jessica Davenport, Stephen Dickerman, Justo Garcia, Lindsey Holton, Clayton Humphrey, Ronald Key, Miriam Lagos, Makenzie Maupin, Madeleine Patton, Melissa Perez, Meredith Rimkus, Addison Roy and Rachel Trejo.

The students were supervised by psychology faculty members Dr. Jo Meier-Marquis, associate professor and chair, Dr. Carl Scott, associate professor, and Dr. Srijana Shrestha, assistant professor.

Overall, students considered the conference a unique opportunity where they could present their research and receive feedback on their work. Many had an opportunity to respond to questions addressed to them and network with like-minded professionals.

The undergraduate psychology program is an integration of research, methodology, social justice, a liberal arts curriculum, the study of human nature and mental processes. Psychology students will graduate with the skills and strong scientific foundation essential for graduate studies and successful careers in psychology.
