On Friday, May 1 students from the BCTR presented summaries of their work at the 4th annual BCTR student showcase. A total of 10 students, representing The Cornell Research Program on Self Injury and Recovery, the Superstar Practitioner Project, and ACT for Youth, demonstrated knowledge and skills gained through their research experiences. Presentation topics ranged from assessing the needs and resources of independently living youth in Tompkins County to the production of an info-graphic on mental health issues designed for dissemination via social media.

ACT for Youth students Kate Goldberg and Rachel Cooper presented their poster on the evaluation of evidence-based sexual education programs, which was awarded “Best Social Science/Design/Humanities Poster” at the annual Cornell Undergraduate Research Board’s spring forum. Kemar Prussien presented findings from her honors research project on the intersection of non-suicidal self-injury and perceptions of self-worth. Kemar graduates with honors from the psychology department this month.

One of the most impressive aspects of each year’s showcase was its demonstration of  how unique and diverse each student’s experience can be, even when working within the same project. The evidence of this breadth of experience in undergraduate research opportunities at the BCTR made for an engaging afternoon for the students and the showcase attendees.
