Personal Statement

  Program: Teenager & Juvenile Developmental Psychology

  In my undergraduate program, I received education across two fields—a degree program in law at the Law School of XX University and a degree program in psychology at XX University. My rigorous academic trainings across those two fields have given me necessary qualifications for pursuing a more advanced program either in psychology or in law, endowing me with a unique advantage in interdisciplinary knowledge.

  As far as I am concerned, law and psychology are reciprocal. They all pertain to human behavior. As a matter of fact, my thesis in law, entitled “ XXX “ explores juvenile delinquency by examining the complicated psychological factors of the younger generation of China in family, school and neighborhood settings. However, there are essential differences between them. In terms of the causal relationships of human behavior, law is primarily concerned with the treatment of the consequences of human behavior while psychology probes into the motivations that cause people to act as they do. In the framework of human relations, law aims at orderly and well-regulated social relationship while psychology, with its interventions into the process of human development, seeks to facilitate the healthy development of the individuals.

  While law and psychology are both indispensable to the proper functioning of our society, when it comes to making a choice between those two fields in which to pursue a graduate program, I decide to opt for a program in Developmental Psychology. My decision is motivated by the fact that law can only deal with the aftermath of human behavior whereas psychology can provide preventive measures against possible negative human behavior. Child & adolescent psychology, a field I am interested in, may facilitate the development of healthy personality structure that may enable children and adolescents interact with the society in a harmonious manner.

  I have received sound academic trainings that a student of psychology can expect in China, excelling particularly in Developmental Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Experimental Psychology and other core courses, all of which have imparted to me the necessary theoretical knowledge. My 87/100 GPA in Psychology has made me the top student in my class and the winner of a series of the university’s top-level scholarships. As an undergraduate, I have attempted at some tentative research by submitting essays and research papers to provincial-level and university-level journals (please refer to my Resume). In performing those researches, I find that I have benefited considerably from my solid mathematics foundation and the related methodology—my score for the Advanced Mathematics course is 98/100 while the SPSS was nearly full mark. I have mastered important statistical and quantitative methods, computer programming and LISREL with much facility and I excel in designing experiments and preparing questionnaires.

  I started to perform formal academic research at the Developmental Psychology Lab in XX University two years by working as a research assistant to Prof. XX, a leading Chinese scholar on social development in childhood and adolescence and peer relations. By focusing on the peer relations, social cognition, social self-concept, attributions, and past social experiences, I completed a full-length research paper XX, which became a poster presentation at the XX. My research indicates that in addition to maintaining an appropriate level of social self-concept and optimistic attributional style, it is essentially worthwhile to emphasize another two strategies to improve the positive peer nominations: to pay special attention to the attributions to negative events of the life, and to attribute social popularity or success to some stable causes. Based on my distinguished academic performance, I attended the XX and the XX.

  Off campus, I have worked as a social worker offering psychological consulting for the “No Worry Teenagers” column for the authoritative journal XX, dealing with the problems concerning interpersonal relations and social cognition of adolescents and young adults. This experience allowed me to gain insight into many important aspects of the mental lives of this group of people beyond the mere statistical data. However, it is a regret that my knowledge is insufficient to offer adequate consulting service to my audience of such diverse backgrounds. This fact reveals to me the need to undertake more advanced studies to improve my professional competence.

  I am strongly interested in the developmental psychology of adolescents because by helping adolescents build up a healthy psychology that may enable them to successfully integrate into the competitive world of adults, hence fewer social problems could be created. In my proposed program, I would like to concentrate on the following subjects: social cognitive and social-emotional development in childhood and adolescence; peer relations and family relations and their influence on development; resilience in high risk settings; development of self-esteem; gender differences and similarities, and research methods. The University of XX’s graduate education is very strong in those fields. Your faculty consists of distinguished professors who come from leading universities and have made important research achievements. Your program offers students a total of 14 labs, among which Multiple Identities and Interpersonal Interactions Lab is most relevant to my study. I expect that your Ph.D. program can give me instruction in the fundamental theories and knowledge of developmental psychology and also give me rigorous training in planning, conducting and evaluating research. I would like to identify Prof.XX as my potential advisor, whose research interests covers a wide spectrum, including most of the fields I am interested in.

  To me, psychology means care, psychological research is to find out how to care and psychological service is to offer the care. My career objective is to develop into a research-oriented professor who can perform substantial research on adolescent psychology. I will study those features of psychology that Chinese adolescents share with their XX counterparts as China is under heavy influences of XX culture. But I would also examine the role of traditional Chinese culture in shaping the psychology of Chinese adolescents. Apart from my professional activities, I will continue to offer voluntary, non-profit consulting services to those who are in need. Adolescent psychological consulting is only of recent origin and much is to be improved. My prospective XX education will enable me to make important contributions in this regard.

我已经收到了良好的学术培训,心理学的学生,可以预期在中国尤其是在发展心理学,认知心理学,实验心理学等核心课程外,所有这一切都传授给我了必要的理论知识,擅长。我的87/100 GPA心理学让我在我班上的尖子生赢家一系列的大学的顶层奖学金的。作为一名大学生,我已经尝试了一些初步的研究,提交论文和研究论文,省级和大学水平的期刊(请参阅我的简历) 。在进行这些研究时,我发现,我受益很大,从我的扎实的数学基础和相关的方法,我的高等数学课程的得分为98/100 ,而SPSS是几乎满标志。我已经掌握了重要的统计和定量分析方法,计算机编程和线性结构有许多设施,我擅长设计实验和准备问卷。
我开始进行正式的学术研究在发展心理学实验室在XX大学两三年的工作作为研究助理教授XX ,一家领先的中国学者对社会发展在童年和青春期和同伴关系。通过专注于同伴关系,社会认知,社会自我概念,归因,和过去的社会经验,我完成了一个完整长度的研究论文,成为XX在XX海报介绍。我的研究表明,除了维持适当水平的社会自我概念和乐观的归因方式,它本质上是值得强调的另外两个战略,以提高阳性的同行提名:要特别注意生活的负面事件归因社会知名度或成功,并归因于一些稳定的原因。基于我的杰出的学术表现,我参加了XX和XX 。
校外,我曾作为一名社会工作者,提供心理咨询权威期刊XX “无后顾之忧少年”列,处理问题的青少年和年轻成年人的人际关系和社会认知。这方面的经验,让我洞察超出了单纯的统计数据,这组人的心理生活的许多重要方面。然而,这是一个遗憾的是,我的知识是不够的,我等不同背景的观众提供足够的咨询服务。这一事实表明我需要进行更先进的研究,以提高我的专业能力。
我在青少年发展心理学,因为浓厚的兴趣,帮助青少年建立健康的心理,这可能使他们成功地融入竞争激烈的世界成人,因此可以创建较少的社会问题。在我的方案,我想专注于以下科目:社会认知和社会情感的发展在童年和青春期,同伴关系和家庭关系及其对开发的影响;在高风险环境中的应变能力;自尊的发展;性别差异和相似之处,研究方法。 XX大学的研究生教育在这些领域是非常强的。你的教师由来自著名大学的特聘教授,并取得了重要的研究成果。你的程序为学生提供了共14个实验室, ,其中多重身份和我的书房是最相关的人际交往实验室。我期待你的博士学位程序可以给我指令在发展心理学的基本理论和知识,也给我规划,进行严格的培训和评估研究。我想找出我的潜在的顾问,其研究兴趣涉及广泛,包括大多数字段我感兴趣Prof.XX
