Counseling Psychology Students Place First at SWPA

Thursday, April 16, 2015

A trio of doctoral students in the College of Education’s counseling psychology program placed first in the Southwestern Psychological Association (SWPA) annual graduate competition. Joe Currin, Sam Farley and Colton Brown were honored for their research presentation during SWPA’s meeting and conference, April 10-12 in Wichita, Kan.

The students’ presentation was based on their abstract entitled “Impact of Non-Heterosexual Impulses on Heterosexuals’ Attitudes Toward Monogamy and Casual Sex.” Faculty from across the nine-state region evaluated the presentations and chose the OSU group as the winner.

“Several of my colleagues from other institutions were impressed by (their) presentation and the manner in which they were able to field difficult questions from the audience,” Dr. Randy Hubach, assistant professor in the School of Applied Health and Educational Psychology and Director of the Sexual Health Research Lab at OSU.
