Understanding the contextual setting we live and reside in is a cornerstone concept to community psychologists. Researchers have explored one’s sense of community and place attachment but only recently examined psychological home – a non-physical sense of peace and comfort experienced outside the confines of a physical structure. In this study, we gathered data from a USA community sample of DePaul University students to examine if the type of residential community an individual grew up in had potential developmental impact on one’s sense of psychological home later in life.
