People at Laurier

Dr. Anne Wilson, Department of Psychology A social psychologist that specializes in self-appraisals, Dr. Anne Wilson explores how comparisons shape people’s self-image over the course of their lives, which influences their current well-being, satisfaction and health in general. Of particular interest are the comparisons they make to others and those involving their former selves. Her research will eventually lead to programs that can help people deal with major life events including going to university, changing jobs and moving into assisted living.
