Arriaga recipient of 2014 Award for Excellence in Family Research

Ximena Arriaga, Associate Professor of Psychological Sciences, is the recipient of the second annual Award for Excellence in Family Research at Purdue University.

Ximena Arriaga Arriaga's article “Filling the Void: Bolstering Attachment Security in Committed Relationships” co-written with Madoka Kumashiro, Eli J. Finkel, Laura E. VanderDrift, and Laura B. Luchies, was judged to be the best, family-based research paper published by a Purdue faculty member, in 2013.

The Award for Excellence in Family Research is given to faculty of Purdue University who, as primary investigator, publish outstanding family research during the 2013 calendar year. All nominated articles were evaluated by a panel of reviewers including Center for Families faculty partners and outside affiliates. Research from any discipline, department or college was eligible for this award, and nominations from a wide variety of disciplines were encouraged. Articles were published in a peer-reviewed journal, and were empirical (both qualitative and quantitative methods were welcome, but narrative literature reviews were not eligible).

Arriaga's article was published in the October 2013 edition of Social Psychological and Personality Science. The online version of the article can be found here.
