I can't say enough about the Education program. I was so close with all of my professors...I was always emailing and meeting with them. And the small class sizes are great - it was so personal. I loved it!

Psychology Professor Dr. Gagan "Mia" Khera co-authored a chapter in the recently published Handbook of Counseling Women. Dr. Khera wrote "Counseling South Asian American Women" with Anneliese Singh, Ph.D., and Muninder Ahluwalia, Ph.D. The work presents a review of relevant research and a discussion of contextual factors, as well as case examples.

Dr. Ann Leonard-Zabel presented at the International Symposium on Cognitive Research and Disabilities on the topic "Solving the Assessment Mystery of Autism Spectrum Disorders," in St. Augustine, Florida on February 14, 2017. Dr. Leonard-Zabel was one of 25 international experts who presented talks on how cognitive disabilities affect the helping professions, as well as disabled individuals across the lifespan.  

In addition, Dr. Leonard-Zabel is one of 11 international content contributors whose research assisted with the developing and supplying material for the Board Certified Cognitive Specialist credential-education track. This certification was recently developed by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCE) for educators and health professionals who work with individuals with cognitive disorders.

Dr. Leonard-Zabel was also featured as the Certified Autism Specialist for September 2016 in the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) for Autism Spectrum Disorders. IBCCES first established the industry standards for a Certified Autism Specialist and their standards are now used by organizations all over the world to ensure the highest quality of care and training for professionals in the field of Autism.

In August 2016, Dr. Leonard-Zabel served as the Opening Keynote speaker and presented two papers at the 24th World Congress on Learning Disabilities at the University of Sunderland, London, England. Her keynote was titled, "The Resilient Brain: The Neuropsychology of Pediatric Resilience Despite the Impact of Emotional Disorders".   The World Congress on Learning Disabilities is a highly respected organization involving professionals from a variety of industrial and developing nations providing best-practices on behalf of children and youth with disabilities.

Professor Bruce Steinberg recently teamed up with a group of nationally recognized scientists, including renowned neuropharmacologist/author Kenneth Blum Ph.D., on a potential new treatment approach for those who suffer from Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

This innovative study, conducted at Curry College using the Psychology Lab's advanced EEG recording and analysis system (dubbed LORETA), focused on attention, memory and brain function in an adult subject with ADHD. The team conducted their research before and after the participant consumed a dose of a commercially available dietary supplement, which was designed to stabilize the metabolic activity of Dopamine, a brain neurotransmitter known to be involved in ADHD.

The results of the study demonstrated an improvement in the electrical activity of brain areas that support attention and memory and culminated in the publication of a paper in the Journal of Open Clinical Medicine & Case Reports (see link above for full publication).

In 2016, Dr. Eric Weiser contributed an essay, "Organic Illness and Psychiatry," to the upcoming eBook, "Psychology," for Gale, a division of Cengage Publishing. The essay provides an overview of the biological basis of psychopathology. The eBook will be available later in 2016.

In 2015, Dr. Weiser's research study, "#Me: Narcissism and its Facets as Predictors of Selfie-Posting Frequency" was published in the journal, Personality and Individual Differences. Dr. Weiser's research, which is an extension of his long-standing interest in Psychology and the Internet, documents the relationship between the individual's self-absorption (narcissism) and the frequency with which they post images of themselves to social media. This is an exciting publication which helps us to understand a pervasive social behavior.
