A group of 17 students and all three faculty members from Catawba College’s psychology department will travel to the 61st Southeastern Psychological Association annual conference in Hilton Head, South Carolina, March 18-21.

The group will be active in all aspects of the conference — from presiding at sessions to attendance at symposia and talks — and, most importantly, will make seven research presentations conducted by the faculty and students of the psychology department.

Senior Katherine Lins of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Dr. Lyn Boulter will be presenting “Parent Choice Of Pre-Kindergarten Sites: Do Parents Look Beyond Location?”

Dr. Erin Wood will present “Related Self – Efficacy and Associated Demographic and Wellness App Use Trends.”

Seniors Ekaterina “Katia” Kruglov of Karmiel, Israel, Ellen Stout of Statesville, junior Erich Guebert of Martinsville, Virginia, and Dr. Sheila Brownlow will present “The Influence of Ego Depletion on Self-Enhancement Strategies.”

Junior Kathleen Burris of Mount Pleasant, Lins and Brownlow will present “Does Fitness Priming Influence Judgments of Self- and Other Physical and Psychological Characteristics?”

Senior psychology major Katherine Sims of Mocksville will present “An Examination of Counseling Strategies in Psych-oncology: A Literature Review” in the undergraduate presentation session, sponsored by Brownlow.

Additionally, both Boulter and Wood will present in a symposium called “Using Class Activities to Keep Psychology Students Interested,” and Boulter, Wood and Brownlow all served on the program committee, reviewing research proposals.

Boulter and Brownlow will both preside at sessions.  Brownlow also reviewed abstracts for student research for the Committee for Equality in Professional Opportunity and Boulter represented Catawba’s Psi Chi chapter at organization activities.

In addition to the students who present their research as aforementioned, the following students will be attending the conference: Jennifer Beach of Westminster, Maryland; Kristina Bishop of Mocksville; Ashley Everidge of Hamptonville; Joe McDonald of Charlotte; Erica Pippen of Durham; Abby Moore of University Park, Maryland; Faith Carleton of Cleveland and Timothy Conner of Statesville.
