Lyndsay and fellow UNB graduate student and loneliness researcher M. Kathleen O'Connell presented this month at Congress2014's meeting of the Sexuality Studies Association (details of this research available on the research page). Although definitely not the typical material our peers were used to encountering, psychology ended up being a very welcome addition to the discourse on challenging social norms and social exclusion. Thank you to Congress for a fantastic, multidisciplinary experience,
