Research Topic 1

As a psychology major I am intrigued at how external forces influence the thoughts and actions of a person, especially those who are military veterans and even more Navajo veterans. With this project I will be utilizing the maps Marcia Baxter Magolda used to allow her audience to visualize her interviewees pursued path toward self-authorship. I will create such a map for one subject to aid in telling the journey he embarked upon. A journey to establish a strong sense of self, acceptance of support, and as Magolda mentioned in her interview, a way of navigating through internal and external conflicts with minimal pain.
