Cara Copeland and Brooke Alexander Mentorship of the Month

Sep 2019 Mentorship of the Month

September's Mentorship of the Month goes to Cara Copeland, Brooke Alexander, and Dr. Jonathan Gore!


Cara and Brooke were students in Dr. Gore's Research Methods and Statistics course in the Psychology Department. Soon after, they became involved with some of Dr. Gore's latest research projects. Cara Copeland, whose interests are in School Psychology, examined how internal and external locus of control each contribute to academic self-efficacy. She presented these results at the annual Student Academic Conference of the Kentucky Psychological Foundation and earned First Place in their poster competition!

Brooke Alexander, whose interests are in forensic psychology, examined how a heightened need for power explains why narcissistic people engage in more aggressive and criminal behavior. She presented these results at the Posters at the Capitol event in Frankfort, KY. last March, and she also presented at the annual University Presentation Showcase in April, where she won the Outstanding Scientific Project Award!

Congratulations to both Cara and Brooke for their remarkable work and recognition in psychological research!
