Poonam Desi Awarded 2nd Annual Student Development Committee Research Award

On behalf of the Student Development Committee, I am very pleased to announce that Poonam Desai has been selected as the second annual recipient of the SDC Research Award. This monetary award is given to a EdD or PhD student in the final phases of his/her dissertation.

Poonam’s proposed dissertation, Exploring the Impact of Mindfulness on Adolescents with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders: A Mixed Methods Approach, was selected for its possible contribution to the field in dealing with the mental health and well-being of the population under study. The research may also benefit practiconers who wish to bring mindfulness into their own social-emotional learning curriculum, counseling, or classroom culture.

Poonam will receive her award at lunch during the Research Symposium on April 20.
