hmong research --also response to amy kue
- Hey guys! I just found this site. To Amy Kue's post--this may be too
late but I'm doing my Masters thesis in psychology on basically what
you are looking at: differences in Asian Americans vs. European
Americans on emotion expression and emotion differentiation and how
that impacts their life satisfaction and psychological well being.
There are a ton of resources on psychINFO. I could just send you by
bibliography too if you want. None have looked at the Hmong
specifically, but at the general areas of collectivism vs.
individualism. There are only a couple studies in psychology focusing
on the Hmong.
Second, I have been wanting to do some sort of research in Thailand
with Hmong children. I was thinking maybe in Hmong orphanages or
something or with the children of the refugee camps and resilience. I
know Dr. Masten at UMN is doing research on the ones in the US but I
was thinking of going to Thailand. Not really sure though. But I want
to help the Hmong over there and it's hard because there are not a
lot of resources or people who care. Any ideas guys? Thanks. I don't
use this yahoo email. You can reach me at bruce.thao@.... Thanks!
