Meghan Colosimo, BS
Meghan is currently a second year student in the Master of Science program. She earned a distinguished Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from the University of Delaware, where she graduated Cum Laude. She is a member of both Psi Chi and Phi Beta Kappa. Prior to attending Drexel, Meghan worked as the Intake and Scheduling Coordinator at an outpatient mental health group practice. Her research interests lie broadly in the arena of stress and coping, with special interests in health psychology, trauma, and meaning-making processes. Her undergraduate thesis examined acceptance, stress-related growth, and psychological adjustment in the bereaved. Meghan's M.S. thesis is assessing the role of social problem solving as a potential moderator of the relationship between the experience and perception of daily life stress and physical symptomatology in males diagnosed with Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome. In the future, she hopes to investigate the efficacy of Problem Solving Therapy as a new, evidence-based treatment option for men managing stress and chronic pelvic pain. She enjoys reading, writing, attending concerts, and spending time with her dog, Roxy.
