NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Dr. Sherri Pataki, Westminster College associate professor of psychology, had a book review published by PsycCRITIQUES in the fall.
Pataki's article "Balancing Intimate Connection and Personal Growth for Women in Their 20s" reviews Leslie C. Bell's Hard to Get: Twenty-Something Women and the Paradox of Sexual Freedom. In the review Pataki discusses a developmental stage in a women's life described as emerging adulthood - a transitional period that focuses on personal development and exploration before making long-term commitments. She goes on to describe Bell's three strategies that women can use to navigate through this developmental stage.

Pataki, who joined the faculty in 2004, earned an undergraduate degree from Allegheny College and a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University.
