Professor Authors Book on "The Psychology of Santa"
University of Scranton Psychology Professor Carole Slotterback's research of more than 1,200 children's letters to Santa reveal what children really want for Christmas. Dr. Slotterback wrote about her findings in a recently published book "The Psychology of Santa." Scranton alumnus Jeff Chirico, a reporter for WBRE-TV, did a story about her findings that aired locally on Nov. 23 and has subsequently aired on news broadcasts throughout the country, including stations in Savannah, Ga.; Salt Lake City, Utah; Jacksonville, Fla.; Atlantic City, N.J.; Memphis, Tenn.; and Madison, Wis.
