Associate Professor of Psychology Jennifer Borton presented an invited lecture titled “Fragile Self-Esteem and the Focus of Attention After Ego Threat” on March 23 at Syracuse University.


In her lecture to social psychology faculty and graduate students, Borton discussed four recent studies conducted in her lab that demonstrated that although people with fragile self-esteem are motivated to avoid negative self-relevant information, they have an attentional bias toward it.
