RED Talks

On Feb. 22, three applied psychology graduate students presented at RED Talks, a campus-wide research series sponsored by Langsdale Library. Pictured above is Tannaz Rahman who gave a talk on “Learning and conservation at the National Aquarium." The other presenters (not pictured) were Stephen Shaul who presented on “Mediational effects of distress intolerance between PTSD symptomology and reactive aggression” and Charles Thorton who presented on “Adolescent bullying associated with adult professional development.”
