Dr. Jonathan Tudge (Human Development and Family Studies) received new funding from the John Templeton Foundation for the project “Gratitude, well-being, and the decline of materialism: A cross-cultural study of character formation in children and adolescents.” This project will provide much-needed data on gratitude and materialism in children and young adolescents, the abstract says. Gratitude is crucial to study, as it creates and strengthens relations among people, is associated with a range of positive benefits both for individuals and groups, and is negatively related with excessive materialism.
