PSYC 386 - Advanced Research Methods in Psychological Science

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)


Individual or group studies with prior approval of the adviser and of the instructor who supervises the work. This course focuses on advanced research and statistical techniques of psychological science. 

Topic for 2020/21b: Advanced Research Methods in Psychological Science. This course focuses on the empirical study of positive emotions and resilience. Resilience is characterized by the ability to adapt and recover from adversity (Bonanno, 2004; Masten, 2007; Skodol, 2010, Tugade, 2011) and to thrive and flourish despite personal and social stressors (Steinhardt & Dolbier, 2008). This intensive will contribute to a program of research on resilience, consisting of two main areas. The first area focuses on investigating the components of resilience, including self-compassion, gratitude, mindset, and flexible grit. The second area of our work will examine applications of resilience research across several domains (e.g., education, workplace). Towards this aim, we will develop and assess resilience programs, and we will also work on science communication skills, with the overall aim of developing evidence-based strategies to improve mental health and well-being. Michele Tugade.
