Arina Cotuna presents PS-3 at APA

Third year Clinical graduate student, Arina Cotuna, was selected as a finalist for the first annual American Psychological Association Convention’s Psychological Science in 3 (PS-3) competition. The event, held on August 9th in Chicago, brought together eight psychological scientists, each of whom presented their unique research and competed against other graduate students from across the United States. Arina presented her work in the area of suicide prevention as well as her efforts to lead the ASU Chapter of Helping Give Away Psychological Science (HGAPS). Arina said it was “a great experience for students, especially for those who enjoy the challenge of presenting in front of national peers and psychologists with diverse backgrounds and interests.” Arina encouraged all students to submit a PS-3 presentation to future APA meetings.  She closed with the comment “it was a cool and rewarding opportunity.” We congratulate Arina on her achievements and thank her for representing Appalachian and the Department with pride!
