Risk to Resilience Lab

Tattoo with the word 'Resilience' and a tree

Our Mission

The overarching theme of our research focuses on the family processes that contribute to the development of/or protection against psychopathology. We also have an abiding interest in the study of resilience--uncovering the protective factors that allow youth to overcome the risks associated with stress and trauma will help us to design intervention and prevention programs that are developmentally sensitive and effective in real-world settings.
