As environmental issues continually increase in our world, no research has studied how moral identity (defined as moral values and motivation) relates to an individual's tendency towards environmental involvement. We conducted two studies to examine this relationship. In Study I, 164 university students filled out a questionnaire to assess their mo...

Psychological symptoms are nested within autobiographical narratives. The narrative emotion process coding system (NEPCS) describes how people tell stories, identifying problematic narratives: Same Old Story, Empty Story, Unstoried Emotion, and Superficial Story. These markers refer to observable narrative features rather than a story’s content. Al...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which affects 8 to 13% of reproductive-aged women, is a highly gendered disorder whose symptoms disrupt Western conceptions of femininity. This may be especially debilitating for young women, who are targeted by societal discourses governing how they “should” be. We interviewed 10 young Canadian women, aged 18 to 2...

Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common endocrine disorder among women aged from 18 to 40 years. Its debilitating menstrual/obesity-related symptoms challenge conceptions of femininity. To date, age-related differences in women’s body esteem and physicians’ symptom management recommendations have not been investigated. Age moderated the relati...

In this longitudinal Canadian study, we investigated the relationship between the developmental trajec-tories of community involvement and generative concern measured at ages 23, 26, and 32. Participants completed a questionnaire on youth involvement, the Youth Involvement Inventory (YII), and the Loyola Generativity Scale (LGS) at all 3 ages. A la...

The term, false memory, describes outcomes to various procedures and techniques, such as coming to believe that suggested false events occurred, acceptance of post-event misinformation, and recognition of critical lures in the Deese-Roediger-McDermott (DRM) procedure. The literature to date indicates that these memory errors inter-correlate poorly,...

W hile culture's effect on the coping process has long been acknowledged in the stress-coping literature conceptually, empirical evidence and attempts to discern the specific relationship between culture and coping remain very scarce. Against this backdrop, the present study applied the Cultural Transactional Theory (Chun, Moos, & Cronkite, 2006) t...

Canadian participants completed a questionnaire on generative concern at ages 23, 26 and 32 and were then interviewed about their personal experiences with the environme...

We are currently obtaining pilot data in a sample of women diagnosed with PCOS regarding their experiences with the diagnostic process. Specifically, we aim to assess 1) the potentially negative impact of feminine body-type stereotypes on diagnostic decisions by medical professionals, and 2) the consequences of these biases on the time it takes women to receive a diagnosis and the resulting physical and psychological health outcomes of bias-related delays. This pilot data is part of a long-term research agenda to better understand the negative consequences of biased attitudes toward women in a health care context and to develop empirically grounded interventions for health care professionals to reduce these negative consequences. We are interested in collaborating with others interested in PCOS or women's health more globally and look forward to connecting with you!

Previous research has used standard regression to measure the impact of change in community involvement on these variables. However, the impact of change between two ages may not reflect the impact at other ages. A standard repeated measures ANOVA would most likely not be sufficient due to a lack of accounting for individual differences and disallowing unequal intervals. A multilevel growth curve model using orthogonal polynomial contrasts addresses both of these issues.
