Developmental Psychopathology and Serious Mental Illness Lab

Research in this laboratory focuses on developmental psychopathology and the role of social cognition in the clinical expression of serious mental illness. Specifically, we study individuals with mood and psychotic disorders, and the extent to which they have difficulties understanding social cues and interacting with others. Our research also examines the relationships between early traumatic experiences and later clinical outcomes and social-cognitive impairments. Research assistants typically help with data collection and entry for studies that involve both college students and pediatric populations.
