At the 39th international conference of the Stress and Anxiety Research Society (STAR) in Lublin, Poland (July 10–13, 2018) Krys Kaniasty’s research program was featured in four presentations. The presentation, titled “It’s complicated II: Type D personality and social support,” was coauthored with Psychology Honor’s Program student Kate Appolonia.

The other three presentations, collaborations with researchers from Israel, Mexico, and New Zealand, investigated social support dynamics following recent disastrous events (earthquake, hurricane, and presidential elections).

Kaniasty also collaborated on a recently published paper with colleagues from Massey University, Wellington and Palmerston North, New Zealand: Guilaran, J., de Terte, I., Kaniasty, K., & Stephens, C. (2018). “Psychological Outcomes in Disaster Responders: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis on the Effect of Social Support.” International Journal of Disaster Risk Science, 9, 344-358.
