Dr. Taku just recently finished her new study in Japan. The purpose of this study is to examine how core beliefs, rumination and subjective perceptions of the earthquake that hit Japan on March 11, 2011, would correlate with posttraumatic growth and distress.
Dr. Taku conducted this survey in the beginning of June. Approximately 300 Japanese undergraduate students participated in her new study. We are currently in the process of creating the coding manual for this study for data entry. More to come soon!
