Bohanek, Jennifer

Dr. Bohanek received her Ph.D. in Cognition and Development from Emory University in 2006. Bohanek’s research as a graduate student at Emory University focused on the social-emotional factors that shape the development of autobiographical narratives in preadolescent children, adolescents, and adults, and in turn, how autobiographical narratives themselves contribute to social-emotional well-being. More specifically, her research addressed the differential socialization of positive and negative emotional events, and how narratives differing by emotional valence and intensity may be related to different aspects of well-being for children, adolescents, adults, and families.
