Psi Chi Distinguished Lecturer

Purging Disorder: Evidence for a
"New" Eating Disorder

This talk will review research conducted on purging disorder (Keel, Haedt, & Edler, 2005), a newly described syndrome characterized by recurrent purging (e.g., self-induced vomiting) after normal or small amounts of food in normal weight individuals.  Considering the adage that "we study what we define," (Walsh & Kahn, 1997), the recent inclusion of purging disorder as a named condition in the DSM-5 can facilitate much needed research into the causes, consequences, and treatment of this “new” eating disorder.

Mother-Daughter Decision-Making to Obtain the HPV Vaccine:
The Role of Cultural Factors

Speaker: Dr. Julia Lechuga (University of Texas at El Paso)
Chair: Evan Zucker (Psi Chi Southwestern Regional Vice-President; Loyola
University New Orleans)

Although prior research has illuminated the relationship between ethnicity and vaccination initiation, such research has been largely silent about the role that contextual factors such as culture may play on the decision to vaccinate young children against a sexually transmitted infection. Prior research on HPV vaccine acceptability has concentrated on elucidating the role of personally-derived attitudes and beliefs, at the expense of contextual factors such as relational culture, culture-derived notions of sexuality and reproduction, and cultural norms regarding the communication of sexuality-related topics. Contextual factors may play a more predominant role than personally-derived attitudes in the decision to adopt preventive behaviors—not for the self—but for significant others, such as children.
