WT Student Work Accepted for International Convention


CANYON, Texas—Two students from the Department of Psychology, Sociology and Social Work at West Texas A&M University had their work accepted by the International Convention of Psychological Science, and it will be presented at the convention March 7–9 in Paris, France.

Jason Rodin, a graduate student in psychology from Amarillo, co-authored the poster Segmenting: Using Videos to Improve Performance in Statistics. This research fits well with Rodin’s plans to attend a doctoral program in statistics. Specifically, he is interested in improving the quality, accessibility and collaborative nature of research.

Cassidy Stiles, a graduate student in psychology from Perryton, co-authored the poster Sexual Esteem Partially Mediates the Effect of Avoidant Attachment on Sexual Satisfaction. After graduation, Stiles plans to become a Licensed Professional Counselor. In particular, she is focused on grief counseling.

The students’ research will be presented by co-author, Dr. Danney Rasco, assistant professor of psychology, thanks to the generous support of WTAMU’s College of Education and Social Sciences.
