The first of two conferences attended this past semester was the Midwestern Psychological Association Conference in downtown Chicago. The conference was held at the Palmer House from May 2nd-4th. Both presentations given by the lab members included posters. Along with the lab members, Dr. Taku also had a successful poster presentation at MPA.
- Taku, K., Thomas, I., Elam, S., & McGuire, K. Linguistic Variances Associated with Psychological Growth: Effect of Collectivistic and Individualistic Climates.
- Elam, S., McGuire, K., Thomas, I. Comparisons of Impactful Life Events among Adolescents in Japan and the United States.
- Taku, K. Within-Individual Variability as an Index of Posttraumatic Growth.
This was an overall great experience for the PTG lab members, allowing them to engage with student researchers from all over the country and educating themselves with different studies. Aside from work, the lab members were able to explore downtown Chicago!
