Bio

Professor David S. Crystal has wide-ranging interests in developmental, clinical, and cross-cultural psychology. He is especially concerned with how cultural contexts affect such psychological phenomena as concepts of normalcy and deviance, attitudes toward self-change, and disturbances in socioemotional adjustment among children and youth. His special area of focus relates to East Asian, particularly Japanese culture. He is presently conducting research into the origins of prejudice in children, and the cognitive, cultural, and affective components of children's social and political problem-solving.
