Dawn Sweet Has Paper Published
June 10, 2021
Dawn Sweet, assistant professor in Communication and Psychology in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, recently published a paper about the relationship among mindfulness, rumination, depression, stress, anxiety, communication apprehension and willingness to communicate among veterinary medicine students. Students and practitioners of veterinary medicine experience higher rates of suicide and depression than other professions. Results suggest that mindfulness training may not only mitigate depression, anxiety and stress, but also mitigate communication apprehension and willingness to communicate, thereby contributing to more positive self-care and improved interactions with veterinary medicine clients.
