Courtney Doxbeck is a Ph.D. student in Educational Psychology and Quantitative Methods at the University at Buffalo, where she is currently conducting research on bullying and its effects on substance use for LGBTQ high school students.  As an ally, Courtney plans to expand the body of research regarding the LGBTQ population to increase support and awareness! 


The mission of The Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention at the University of Buffalo is to reduce bullying abuse in schools and in the community by contributing knowledge and providing evidence-based tools to effectively change the language, attitudes, and behaviors of educators, parents, students, and society.  Because LGBTQ youth are often impacted by bullying, The Alberti Center seeks to foster knowledge and tools that will  help meet the unique needs of these youth.  This year’s conference focused on “Inclusive Schools and Communities: Identifying and Intervening with Microaggressions.”
