Many undergraduate students work in the laboratory on longitudinal studies of social, emotional, psychological, and moral development in children, including children at risk for problems. Graduate students work on studies related to a variety of topics, such as the regulation of emotion, agreeableness and resiliency in children, the role of individual differences in emotionality and regulation in children's adjustment and social competence (in the U.S., China, Indonesia, and France), the socialization of empathy-related responding, and moral reasoning.
