Undergraduate Research Assistants present at 2019 LPA Convention

This June, Joi Bryant and Sarah Guillaume, Child and Family Lab undergraduate research assistants, presented their research posters at the 2019 Louisiana Psychology Association convention. Joi’s poster, “Harsh Parenting among African-American Families: The Carrier of Family and Community Trauma,” examined the associations between maternal history of child sexual abuse, interpersonal violence exposure, community violence, and maternal use of harsh discipline among a predominantly low-income African American sample of 4-5 year olds and their families. Sarah’s Poster, “Racial Socialization of Black Children: The Influences of Child Sex and Maternal Arrest,” examined racial socialization of preschool aged children in the context of maternal arrest. Both of them did a fabulous job and Sarah won best undergraduate poster for original research!  Graduate student, Justin Carreras, has previously won this award in the graduate category. We are excited that we can continue to share our research at this conference.
