Gratitude in Modern Life
Its Manifestations and Development
This chapter examines the manifestations and development of gratitude in modern life. It proposes a framework for thinking developmentally about gratitude and reviewing the scant research on the development of gratitude in childhood and adolescence. It also discusses the result of original research on the relationship between gratitude and identity development and between gratitude and generativity. It describes recent research that traces themes of gratitude in the mythic life stories that enable modern adults to make sense of their lives.
