Dear Colleagues,

We are soliciting manuscripts to be featured in a special issue of the Asian American Journal of Psychology with the theme being “Asian Americans and Positive Psychology.”

The general focus will be on how positive psychology has impacted the study of Asian Americans, and how the study of Asian Americans has impacted positive psychology. We are particularly interested in works that offer new or innovative perspectives on a number of important topics,

  • including the importance of Asian Americans to positive psychology,
  • the usefulness of measuring unique Asian American strengths,
  • examining models of positive psychology for Asian Americans, and
  • the application of positive psychology practice/interventions in working with Asian Americans.

Although we are open to considering all types of scientific submissions, we are particularly interested in those that have a strong empirical basis.

Deadline for submissions is July 31, 2015.

All submissions for the special issue will undergo the same review process as any other manuscript submitted to Asian American Journal of Psychology. Submit manuscripts though the Manuscript Submission Portal.

AAJP’s March Feature Article: “An Exploration of How Asian Americans Respond on the Personality Assessment Inventory”

By | AAJP, Announcements, News | No Comments

Asian American Journal of Psychology, Vol 6 No 1 , (March 2015) Feature Article: “An Exploration of How Asian Americans Respond on the Personality Assessment Inventory” by Jenss Chang (Azusa Pacific University) & Steve R. Smith (University of California, Santa Barbara)

Chang

Dr. Jenss Chang has had a long time interest in psychological testing and increasing awareness around cultural issues for not only Asian immigrants, but also Asian Americans born in the U.S. Her initial interests on the impact of culture on psychological testing were sparked by her curiosity about how her Asian immigrant parents might respond on assessments normed and standardized with primarily White samples. How might cultural beliefs influence how Asian immigrants, like her parents, respond on personality inventories like the PAI? What are the implications that clinicians should be aware of in interpreting test scores for diverse AsianAmericans?

Drs. Chang and Smith’s original article is available for free download for a limited time at http://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/aap/sample.aspx  courtesy of the American Psychological Association Publications.

Statement on Chapel Hill shooting

By | News, Statements | One Comment

The Asian American Psychological Association mourns the deaths of Shaddy Barakat, Yusor Mohammad, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha who were senselessly and tragically murdered in Chapel Hill, NC on February 10, 2015. The three victims were American-born Muslim students of Syrian heritage who were actively involved in their local communities as well as in efforts to ameliorate the lives of Syrian refugees overseas. Although the criminal investigations are still ongoing at this writing, we strongly urge the local and federal authorities to conduct a thorough investigation of this case as a possible hate crime. We stand together with our Muslim brothers and sisters to demand justice, and we send our heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the victims and to the Chapel Hill community.
