Recent research suggests that perceived economic threat constitutes a valid predictor of people’s attitudes and behaviors. While accumulated empirical evidence has mostly underlined the deleterious psychological effects (e.g., reduced psychological well-being) of perceived economic threat in times of economic strain, we postulate that individuals e...

The Big Five Inventory-10 (BFI-10; Rammstedt & John, 2007) is one of many short versions of personality inventories that measure the Big Five trait dimensions. Short versions of scales often present methodological challenges as a trade-off for their convenience. Based on samples from 28 countries (N = 10,560), the current study investigated inter-i...

Background/Purpose: In the context of COVID-19 lockdowns, extant research suggests that secondary coping (a strategy aimed at adjusting oneself self to the stressor) is more robustly associated with better mental health than primary coping (a strategy aimed at adjusting the stressor to oneself).

Recent research indicates that individuals' social class (SC) is connected to a wide range of psychological outcomes. Nonetheless, the question of how SC is related to people's uses of humor during social interactions remains unexplored.

Project
The growing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has impacted the lives of billions worldwide. As of March 28, 2020, will top more than 600,000 diagnoses in over 130 nations across 6 continents – with a death toll surpassing 27,000. While the fatality rate of COVID-19 is lower than SARS or MERS, COVID-19 is far more contagious, and ergo arguably more disruptive than its predecessors. Numerous governments have implemented strict health policies and travel restrictions, leading to disruptions in everyday life and causing anxiety as well as frustration among global citizens. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate the impact of COVID-19 from a variety of psychological and sociocultural perspectives. This project we are curious about several things: 1. How minority members and majority members may differ toward the COVID-19 outbreak? 2. How has interpersonal relationships changed as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak? 3. How has their general life changed ? 4. Do certain groups feel more discrimination since the outbreak? We are currently collecting data over 15 locations (countries/regions): 1. Mainland China 2. Hong Kong, 3. Indonesia, 4. India, 5. Thailand, 6. Philippines, 7. South Korea, 8. Japan, 9. US, 10. Bosnia/Croatia, 11. United Kingdom, 12. Dutch, 13. Poland, 14. Israel,15. Germany, 16. Iran, 17. Pakistan If you are interested in more information or joining the project, please message me! Stay safe and healthy during this global crisis.
Project
Climate change has negative implications for mental health through direct exposure to adverse environmental conditions, as well as through the anxiety and psychological distress that may arise from acknowledging the threat posed by global climate change. The majority of studies have focused on the mental health effects of direct exposure to adverse climatic conditions but there is little empirical evidence regarding how mental health is affected by expsoure to virtual media representations of ongoing environmental impacts. This project is aimed at addressing this gap in the literature through an investigation of the links between media exposure, climate change anxiety and mental health using data gathered from young adults in 26 countries.
