Yukiko Uchida  |  Professor  |  Cultural Psychology, Social Psychology

My research has focused on cultural variations in emotion and social relationships. In the course of my research in cultural psychology, I have suggested that daily practices and meanings construct our psychological functions and self-systems. In particular, my research examines the meanings of happiness and unhappiness; people’s experience of emotions and understanding of others’; and the roles of emotional support and social relationships. My cross-cultural studies examine how participation in meaningful cultural practices fosters these psychological processes.
