Stacy Lopresti-Goodman

Academic Credentials

B.S., Kutztown University
Ph.D., University of Connecticut

Biography

Dr. Lopresti-Goodman joined the Marymount community in the fall of 2009.

In addition to teaching undergraduate psychology classes and working with Honors students on campus, she has led four study abroad programs to primate sanctuaries in Kenya and Spain, where students learned how to conduct naturalistic observations of chimpanzees.

Dr. Lopresti-Goodman also actively engages in research. Currently, her work is aimed at understanding the enduring negative impact that confinement, social isolation, and physical abuse have on the psychological well-being of nonhuman animals rescued from laboratories, including chimpanzees, monkeys, and dogs. She also conducts research on alternatives to the use of animals in psychology education. She has presented her research at academic conferences nationally and internationally, including meetings of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences, the International Primatological Society and American Society of Primatologists, and the National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology. She has published in peer-reviewed journals such as Neuroscience Letters, Behavioral Sciences, Journal of Trauma & Dissociation, Psychology and Education, and the Journal of Animal Ethics, and has been featured in media outlets such as the Washington Post, Nature, NPR, and Science.
