RESEARCH PROJECTS

Risk Resilience & Relationships Research Lab

ONGOING RESEARCH PROJECTS

Our current research projects explore youth mentoring & its association of youth mental health, substance abuse stigma, and sibling relations in the context of alcoholism. We also have series of projects with youth involved in crime, and mental health of incarcerated youth and dissemination of evidence-based interventions for them.

CURRENT THESIS PROJECTS

We also have projects with normative populations. Our grad students examine friendships, sexuality, well-being, and mate selection among emerging adults.

COMPLETED PROJECTS

Our past research examined evidence-based interventions targeting both adolescents involved in crime and probation officers.
