The PTG lab is excited to welcome Matt this upcoming Fall 2016 semester. Matt is a first year MS student with a double major in Psychology and International Relations from the University of Missouri – Columbia as well as a Multicultural Certificate earned via studying abroad at Kwansei Gakuin University in Japan.
Having worked as a primary school teacher in Japan post-graduation, Matt is interested in investigating the variations of Post-Traumatic Growth in Japanese and American populations, with an emphasis on their correlation with an individual’s propensity towards elements of mindfulness and acceptance.
His professional goal is to establish a lab which evaluates the role socio-cultural variations of PTG play in relation to effective trauma-informed care. Matt can be reached at email@example.com.
