Michaela Vilim ’16 and Patricia Schacht, associate professor of psychology
Psychology research underway at North Central College is investigating how parents and youngsters can cope with bullying behaviors.

When Patricia Schacht, associate professor of psychology, offered a senior-level seminar at North Central College called “Bullying,” all 20 spots quickly filled.

An expert in child development and parental behaviors, Schacht is finding an insatiable demand for information on the topic of bullying and its prevention, her topic of scholarly research.
