Models of Achievement: Reflections of Eminent Women in Psychology - Vol. 3

By Agnes N. O'Connell | Go to book overview

I also served as President of the Society for Research In Adolescence in the mid-1990s, devoting my presidency to promoting policy research, enhancing coordination with the Society for Adolescent Medicine, and linking adolescent research with prevention efforts. I also was the Program Chair for the 1990 meeting, which occurred when Remy was 7 weeks old; Anne Petersen and Mavis Heatherton turned the Presidential Party into a baby shower! In 1996,1 received the John R Hill Award, for lifetime excellence in theory development and research on adolescence from the SRA.

I have been extremely fortunate to collaborate with a diverse and wonderful group of scholars and friends over the years. The opportunities afforded by these colleagues have influenced the course of my research and my development as a behavioral scientist. My husband wants to throw a party at the Society for Research on Child Development meetings, entitled “Celebrating Collaborations, ” with all of my writing collaborators invited. His support, love and co-parenting has been central to my research and my life.

I am fortunate to have a wonderful extended family with many children Remy's age and a little cottage on an island off the coast of Maine where there are no cars or telephones. Vacationing with my family there during the summer is a counterpart to the quick pace of research and policy life.
