Welcome to the Stress and Trauma Lab at the University of Minnesota!

Our research focuses on the effects of stress and trauma, including their negative effects (e.g., depression, anxiety) as well as resilience following adversity. We also study factors associated with better functioning in the face of stress and trauma, including perceived present control and coping. We recently have focused on examining these factors using daily-diary methods. We also have developed technology-based interventions to teach skills for coping with stress. Our current research focuses primarily on student mental health.
