Newest Data on Shame and Drinking Published at Western Psychological Association Conference
Last Friday, Portland Psychotherapy research assistants Monica Bahan, Megan Cheslock, and Jackie Potter presented a research poster at the annual Western Psychological Association convention, which took place in Portland. Their poster detailed findings from one of our ongoing studies exploring the relationship between shame, guilt, and drinking behavior. The findings were based on the first 88 participants in the study, all volunteers from the Portland area.
Congratulations to Monica, Megan, and Jackie on their first presentation!
