Berger Students Win Psych Award!

Each year, a division of the American Psychological Association holds a poster contest for entries with international content where students are first authors. One of our students, Victor Lopez ’17, along with Professor Kanaya and co-author Alicia Frausto ’17, presented his poster at this year’s Western Psychological Association conference in Las Vegas and WON first place! His project, “Acculturation: Analyzing Latino Families’ Assimilation Through Their Children’s Names,” examined the traditional versus non-traditional names in association with different generations of mothers. This is the third Berger student to win a first-authored award at WPA under Professor Kanaya’s guidance. Congratulations to all!
