Students from Professor Sue Lawrence’s research group on childhood traumatic loss recently presented their work at the ADEC (Association for Death Education and Counseling) Conference in Pittsburgh, PA on April 26, 2018. Senior Anna Budny and sophomore Ria Malones conducted two poster presentations and assisted Prof. Lawrence in a 30-minute oral presentation of their research. Their study is investigating the effects of loss during childhood on college students and involves both survey and interview data. As the research continues, it is hoped that the findings will be incorporated into practical guidelines for educators to assist grieving children.
