Samara Lipsky

In her psychological pursuits, PhD candidate Samara Lipsky conducts significant research within her field at an international lens. A student in the international psychology program of the Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP), Lipsky not only is immersed within a program that has this broad focus, but she applies it to her personal published research as well. Her published article alongside Jennifer Hay was titled “International Perspectives on Indoor Tanning” and specifically examined the sunbed ideas and ideals of those within European and non-European — but not the United States — countries. Samara Lipsky again focused on a worldly vision as she co-authored a book chapter for “Why Global Health Matters.” Her chapter with Marissa Vishnu Mack is titled, “The Utilization of the Biopsychosocial Model for Disease Prevention and Global Health Promotion,” specifically seeking an all-encompassing view at this psychological concept as it applies to the importance of health.
