Top Tier Lecture Series: The Wing Beneath Dragon’s Wing: Filial Piety and its Correlates

Join the department of counselor education, school psychology & human services and The PRACTICE for a Top Tier lecture featuring Wei-Wen Chen of the University of Macau, China at 11 a.m. June 18 in Carlson Education Building, Room 238. This event is free and open to the public (RSVP requested for refreshment count only to Ching-Chen Chen).

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.

Wei-Wen Chen is an associate professor in education at the University of Macau. Her research focuses on how family relationships influence young adults’ developmental outcomes, including learning, psychological functioning, and romantic relationships.
