Family Research Lab

Welcome to the Family Research Lab!

Our goal is to better understand family relationships and children’s well-being. We are particularly interested in emotions-emotional expression and regulation, emotion socialization, stress, conflict, and closeness. Our current projects investigate parent-child conflict, family stress, and emotional expression in parent-child and marital relationships.
