Webster undergraduate students Michelle Bloyd-Fink and Emily Mason presented original research at the 31st Annual Qualitative Analysis Conference in London, Ontario on June 25, 2014. The conference’s theme for 2014 was “The Social Construction of Boundaries: Creating, Maintaining, Transcending, and Reconstituting Boundaries.”

Alongside fellow scholars from around the world, Bloyd-Fink and Mason presented “Thought Pattern Changes in Participants of a Batterer’s Intervention Program” and shared their findings on the reconstruction of physical and emotional boundaries over time among men who batter, using data from their ongoing longitudinal study on thought patterns among Batterer’s Intervention Program (BIP) participants in St. Louis.

Bloyd-Fink, a double major in Sociology and Women and Gender Studies, and Mason, a double major in Psychology and Women and Gender Studies, began their research on intimate partner violence in January 2014, collecting data from male volunteers enrolled in the BIP program at RAVEN – a non-profit organization in St. Louis dedicated to domestic violence intervention and prevention services.

Their research is aided by grants through the Provost’s Student/Faculty Collaborative Research Grant program.
