Presentation Abstract

"A longitudinal study to test the moderation effect of attachment and resilience in the relationship between polyvictimization and psychological functioning in first semester college women. Freshman women will be recruited from the Psychology Department participant pool, and complete measures of resilience, psychological functioning, polyvictimization, social-support, self-esteem, and attachment security during the first 4 weeks of the semester. Participants will also provide permission to obtain their Fall 2019 GPA and Spring 2020 enrollment data from university records. During the last four weeks of the semester, participants will be asked to return to complete measures of resilience, psychological functioning, stress during the first semester, social-support, locus of control, and social desirability. Regression and Logistic regression models will be used to test the hypothesized moderation effects".
