• Research & Work

    • Students in the Department of Psychology contribute to a tradition of scholarship that is sensitive to social, cultural, and political concerns. Their research, done in collaboration with leading scholars and other graduate students, pairs historical theory with modern analysis to enhance our understanding of today's world.

      • Delay of gratification in at-risk preschool children
      • The role of negative attitudes and emotions about menstruation
      • Shame in the treatment of problematic alcohol use
      • Neuropsychology and mindfulness
      • Taoist cognitive therapy
      • Conflicts regarding food and the body in mother-daughter relationships
      • Embodied dissociation in childhood trauma survivors
      • The role of language in emotion regulation

      Cognitive, Social, and Developmental Psychology students have researched topics such as:

      • Paralinguistic indicators of social desirability in mobile survey responses
      • Factors affecting irony alignment in online message boards
      • The relationship between local environment and social affordances
      • Anticipation of boredom and physiological correlates
