Wright Institute Psy.D. students Arwin Cotas and Crystal Cajilog and Wright alum, Dr. Sahar Dorani, alongside full-time faculty Dr. Alicia del Prado, presented posters at the APA Division 45 Research Conference Society for the Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity, and Race Research on July 8, 2016 at Stanford University.
Dr. Dorani and Dr. del Prado presented a quantitative study examining the effects of acculturation, acculturative stress, and ethnic identity on the psychological well-being of second-generation Iranian Americans entitled "The Impact of Acculturation and Ethnic Identity on Iranian Americans." Arwin Cotas, Crystal Cajilog, and Dr. del Prado presented a quantitative study entitled "How Filipino Are You?: Strengthening the Construct Validity of the Enculturation Scale for Filipino Americans with Colonial Mentality and Acculturation" which further investigated the validity of an existing measure of enculturation by correlating it against a Filipino American acculturation scale and a measure of colonial mentality.
