Trish's research interests involve aging and wisdom, particularly the development of wisdom from post-traumatic growth, characteristics of wisdom over the life course and intergenerational transmission of wisdom. More specifically, can wise behaviors and intergenerational interactions alleviate ageism and heal intergenerational conflict as well as be a conduit for positive aging and well-being. Additionally, Trish is interested in examining the generational, cultural and socio-economic differences in wisdom understanding and wise behaviors.
