On March 4 and 4, 2016, four students from Professor Stephenson's research team, Clinical and Mental Health research,  presented two posters at the Annual Convention of the Eastern Psychological Association, in New York, NY.

Professor Stephenson's  students presented the following posters describing the research conducted by their research team:

Childhood trauma, aggression, and non-suicidal self injury by Matthew Dankanich, Kayla Vandesande, and Hugh Stephenson
Research in the last two decades has examined the relationships between childhood trauma and both aggression and non-suicidal self injury (NSSI). The current study replicated these general findings but also revealed specific relationships between forms of childhood trauma (physical and emotional abuse) and particular behavioral outcomes (aggression and NSSI). These results suggest that different types of childhood trauma may be reflected in distinct internalizing and externalizing behavioral patterns.

Mindful interactions: trait mindfulness, interpersonal relationships and wellbeing by Max J. Calvin, Kelsey l Mazellan, and Hugh Stephenson.

 Those with higher levels of mindfulness are more efficient at interpreting their own internal states (Teixeira, 2013). The current study explores the impact of trait mindfulness on social support, romantic relationship satisfaction, as well as, its impact on anxiety, and depression. Mindfulness was significantly positively correlated with perceived social support. Mindfulness was negatively correlated with, anxiety, and depression and was unrelated to romantic relationship satisfaction.
