Catherine Amiot is a professor at the Department of Psychology of UQAM and a researcher sponsored by the FRSQ. Her research program is composed of two principle axes which aim to understand: (1) how new identities (for example, cultural identities) are integrated into an individuals’ self-concept and (2) how pro-social and anti-social norms endorsed by social groups are internalized and adopted in a manner that is self-determined. Within these two research axes, Catherine seeks to understand how the integration of these identities and norms affects psychological well-being. Her publications have been influential in the fields of social psychology, industrial/organizational and cultural psychology.
