We conduct research on a number of psychological and environmental factors implicated in the onset, maintenance and recovery from depressive conditions. For example, we have investigated the roles of stressful life events, vulnerable self-esteem, rumination, memory biases and impaired executive functioning in depression. In addition, our studies have examined how depression impacts peoples' lives, including how depression can elicit social rejection from other people. Our lab consists of graduate students from both the doctoral program in clinical psychology and masters program in psychology, as well as undergraduate research assistants.
Student Skill-Set Needed: A good candidate for an RA position will be a sophomore or junior with previous research experience (preferable, but not required) who is interested in pursuing a graduate degree in clinical psychology or related fields. We generally expect a two semester
