The first week of August, the PTG Lab ventured to Toronto, Canada to present their research at this years APA convention. Dr. Taku, Leah McDiarmid, and Aundreah Walenski presented their posters Personally Important Posttraumatic Growth as a Predictor of Self-Esteem in Adolescents (Division 1: General Psychology Division) and Cross-Cultural Differences in the Relationship between Hope and Posttraumatic Growth (Division 32: Humanistic Division).
Dr. Taku also presented her research, Burnout and Psychological Growth Affects Wellness in Physicians at a symposium with Dr. Richard Tedeschi and Dr. Jane Shakespeare-Finch. In addition, we were able to visit and speak with other PTG researchers, network with other professionals, further our knowledge of Psychology, and prepare for our upcoming semester of research.
