Top Tier Lecture: The Wing Beneath Dragon's Wing


Jun. 18, 2018, 11am to 1pm

Office/Remote Location

Room 238


The Department of Counselor Education, School Psychology & Human Services (CSH) and The PRACTICE are proud to present the top tier lecture, The Wing Beneath Dragon's Wing: Filal Piety and its Correlates featuring Dr. Wei-Wen Chen, an associate professor at the University of Macau, China.

Filial piety has been the core Confucian ethics in the Chinese culture. However, research about the impact of filial piety on Chinese psychological adaptation has been mixed. In this presentation, the dual filial piety model, including reciprocal filial piety and authoritarian filial piety, will be introduced. In addition, empirical evidence of two filial piety beliefs on individuals’ family functioning, learning, and romantic relationships will be elaborated to further clarify how filial piety has helped shape the psychological development of Chinese young adults.

Dr. Wei-Wen Chen's research focuses on how family relationships influence young adults' developmental outcomes, including learning, psychological functioning, and romantic relationships.
