Psychosocial Indicators of Well-being in College

Currently Recruiting Participants

Facets of well-being including quality of life, positive affect, and life satisfaction have been shown to be predictive of objective indicators of successful outcomes (e.g., income; De Neve & Oswald, 2012). There is growing awareness that the period of emerging adulthood is a particularly sensitive window for the development of features associated with well-being (e.g., psychopathology, Gelbar etal., 2015). Studies have yet to examine the association between psychosocial factors and different facets of well-being in college students. 

The present study aims to (1) identify the relationship between psychopathology, skills, temperament and three facets of well-being and (2) determine how different facets of well-being may be differentially impacted by neuropsychiatric conditions 

Individuals are eligible for study participation if they are (1) enrolled as an undergraduate student at Loyola Marymount University (2) are age 18 or older. Study participation involves completion of a 30 minute survey.
