 W. Keith Campbell, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and Department Head at the University of Georgia, is the author of more than 90 scientific journal articles and book chapters and the books, The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement (with Jean Twenge) and When You Love a Man Who Loves Himself: How to Deal with a One-way Relationship. His work on narcissism has appeared in many news outlets, including USA Today, Newsweek, and The New York Times, and he has made numerous radio and television appearances. He holds a B.A. from the University of California at Berkeley, an M.A. from San Diego State University, a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and did his postdoctoral work at Case Western Reserve University. He lives in Athens, Georgia, with his wife and daughters.


Amy Canevello, Ph.D. is a Research Investigator at the Research Center for Group Dynamics, Institute for Social Research, at the University of Michigan. She received her Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Houston in 2006 and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan.  In collaboration with Jennifer Crocker and the Self and Social Motivation Laboratory, her research focuses on the relationship processes and outcomes associated with two motivational frameworks: self-image goals to construct, maintain, and enhance public and private self-images; and compassionate goals to contribute to pursuits beyond the self or to support others. Specifically, her interests lie in the relational and sociobiological processes behind these goals. Her research uses a variety of methods to examine how compassionate and self-image goals predict the trajectory of interpersonal relationship development and consequences for the self and close others.
