I can be a hero: How to hero stories affect adolescent psychological development?

In September, 2018, I began a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Adler University in Vancouver. Roughly two-and-a-half years later, I presented the results of my thesis study at the 2021 Heroism Science Conference. The study, "I can be a hero: What is the influence of fictional hero stories on the personality development of adolescent males?", is an expression of my lifelong interest in heroes, fantasy, and imagination. The full thesis is Open Access and downloadable from my ResearchGate profile. There are no paywalls, it's open for anyone to view, but it is still copyrighted material.
