Webster Students’ Paper Published in ‘International Psychology Bulletin’

| April 12, 2013

Professor Deborah Stiles (center) and students Nichole Blake and Jane Lucas presented the first version of the paper at the 34th International School Psychology Conference in July 2012 at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.

A research article by Applied Educational Psychology students in the Webster University School of Education will be published in the spring 2013 issue of the International Psychology Bulletin, a publication of Division 52 of the American Psychological Association.

The article, “A Pilot Study of an International Social Justice Module: Supporting Children within a Social Justice Framework,” is a collaborative effort and an example of global citizenship, scholarship, and individual excellence, reflecting months of work by students Nichole Blake, Alicia Hilliard, Leslie Khoury, Jane Lucas, Erica Tinzmann, Adrianne Woodard and applied educational psychology professor Deborah Stiles.

The groundwork for the article began in Spring 2012, when students and faculty in the Applied Educational Psychology program accepted the invitation from the School Psychology program of Loyola University in Chicago to pilot their international social justice module, “Supporting Children within a Social Justice Framework.”

Applied Educational Psychology students, from left, Alicia Hilliard, Erica Tinzmann, Leslie Khoury and Adrianne Woodard also collaborated on the article, “A Pilot Study of an International Social Justice Module: Supporting Children within a Social Justice Framework.”

After participating, the Webster cohort evaluated the module’s activities, including a reflection on the module’s viability in other cultures.

The Webster community supported adapting the program for international use and proposed possible modifications for the using the module in four countries: South Africa, Japan, Norway and the Philippines.

The article will be referenced as: A Pilot Study of an International Social Justice Module: Supporting Children within a Social Justice Framework. Deborah A. Stiles, Jane E. Lucas, Nichole L.
