Zarrow Mental Health Symposium Presentations
Zarrow School social work students were well represented as presenters at the recent Zarrow Mental Health Symposium 2015. Graduate research assistants Kathleen Quinton, Knee Scholar, Jedediah Bragg, Center for the Applied Research for Non-Profits, and Kara Brunk, Knee Scholar, (not pictured) were all co-authors of research presented at the symposium. Pictured also is recent OU PhD graduate Kendra Burnside, LCSW, who presented along side Zarrow School graduate assistant scholars. Their research included an analysis of the "treatment effect" of illicit drugs on buffering the negative relationship between childhood trauma and perceptions of poor health, the importance of active parenting to generating hope in adolescent females, the importance of authentic leadership in generating psychological capital among non-profits employees, and the state of mindfulness as a driver of psychological flourishing. Please join us in congratulating our hard working research assistants as they continue to have a positive impact in informing care delivery for vulnerable Oklahomans.
