ABOUT

Yoshito Kawabata is an associate professor with a background in developmental psychology. He received a B.A. and a M.A. in psychology from the University of Oregon and a Ph.D. in child psychology from the Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota.

Yoshi’s research interest focuses on interpersonal relationships and psychopathology and the roles of contextual factors such as schools, neighborhoods, and cultures on these domains.

He is particularly interested in examining risk and protective factors that may influence developmental processes involving parenting, peer relationships, and forms of psychopathology (i.e., anxiety, depression, and aggression) with a cross-cultural and ethnically diverse sample. In another line of research, Yoshi uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative data and analyzes how and why children and adolescents accept or reject intergroup contact or cross-ethnic friendships.

He has supervised undergraduate and graduate students with their thesis and provided considerable support for research and writing. He has enjoyed these mentoring experiences and is excited to work with students at University of Guam.
