Working with Dr. Ashley Woodman, she presented her work at the Diversifying Clinical Psychology Networking Event for Undergraduates. The study presented, The Effect of a Disability Etiquette Training on Explicit and Implicit Disability Bias, sought to determine whether an ableism and disability identity focused training can change explicit and implicit attitudes in faculty, staff, and graduate students. She is currently working on an honor's thesis under the supervision of Dr. Allecia Reid.
Yana Deeley is a senior Psychology Major working with Dr. Maria Galano. She will be presenting at APS 2022 in Chicago.
