Chiaki Konishi specializes in the area of social-emotional development and applied statistics in educational and developmental psychology. Her research has concentrated on understanding the roles of connectedness on children's and adolescents' growth and well-being in the framework of social and emotional development, with particular emphasis on stigmatized experiences of bullying and discrimination.
Chiaki has conducted various studies, including longitudinal and cross-national studies of bullying and victimization, large-scale studies on school climate, school safety and social responsibility. In addition, her studies encompass marginalized populations of youth, including sexual and racial minorities, particularly in relation to their stigmatized experiences such as school victimization. Her investigations also include a meta-analytic review of school bullying associated with mental health and an examination of the roles of anti-homophobia programs along with policies on sexual minority youth’s health. Her current focus has been the application of social and ecological perspectives to understand developmental processes.
