Congratulations to Vanessa Brown, Knee Scholar, who was lead author on a poster presentation at the recent Oklahoma Council on Family Relations Conference at OSU-Tulsa. Co-authors included Professor Ricky Munoz, fellow Knee Scholar Kara Brunk, and fellow social work graduate research assistant Jedediah Bragg. Their research includes a factor analysis and a bootstrapped mediation model that supports perceptions of family support as a causal driver of hope for the future and overall life satisfaction among a sample of adolescent females. Their work supports the importance of social work interventions that build strong families.
