Benefits of Reminiscing across Development: Socialization, Meaning-Making, and Well-Being

Dr. Jordan Booker completed a Ph.D. in developmental psychology at Virginia Tech and is currently an IRACDA postdoctoral fellow at Emory University. His research centers on facets of human flourishing and resilience, emphasizing periods of adolescence and early adulthood. He focuses on research questions concerning socio-emotional competence, identity development, and strengths of character. His current project builds on earlier research addressing the socio-emotional implications of family emotion discourse and young adult expressive writing. He will discuss aspects of autobiographical reminiscing in socialization, meaning-making, and well-being across three developmental periods: childhood and adolescence; emerging adulthood; and middle adulthood. 

Open discussion will follow the talk.
