After four long years, the Honours Bachelor of Behavioural Psychology (BPSYC) graduating class of 2022 is moving on and starting a new chapter of their lives this spring. They have overcome many obstacles as a cohort during the past four years at St. Lawrence College. The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic tested them with alternative learning, virtual communication and supervision, and uncertainties during their final placements. However, no matter the challenges and barriers they faced, they came together to make it to the finish line.
One of the biggest achievements that the BPSYC students have accomplished this year is completing their theses during these pressing times. They were able to conduct impressive research on topics such as addictions and mental health, applied behavioural analysis, corrections and justice services, developmental disabilities, geriatrics, housing and homelessness, children and adolescent mental health, professional resources, and trauma informed care. The class has created an abstract booklet of all the theses completed this year. A link has been included below for their friends, family, peers and school community to view.
"We would like to thank the college and our professors for all their time, knowledge, and patience. We would not have completed this journey without everyone’s support and encouragement. We know the graduating students this year will do great things for the community services field," said Becca Fowler.
