ABCT - Association for Behavioral and cognitive therapies- Elsie Ramos Memorial Student Poster Award

During my doctoral training, I completed a study examining the effects of an extinction treatment for bedtime resistance on the attachment behavior of young children. This was the first of its kind and led to the prestigious award of Elsie Ramos Memorial Student Poster Award, at the 2015 conference.
