Part of Gonzaga University’s Transformation Cafe lecture series presented by GU faculty. Features Vinai Norasakkunkit, assistant professor of psychology. Western notions of the self as independent and autonomous lead to assumptions about motivation, emotions, and thinking patterns that challenge globalization efforts, especially when engaging with traditionally collectivistic and conformist societies like Japan. Discover how emotional well-being and distress manifest differently across cultures, and how external pressures from globalization can impact individuals in these societies in negative and positive ways.
