The Child Adaptation and Maternal Psychopathology Laboratory studies processes of risk and resilience within the context of the parent-child relationship. Our lab is interested in exploring how parental caregiving and parent-child interactions serve as underlying mechanisms for children's psychosocial development and adaptation. We are especially interested in risks associated with maternal mental health and maternal trauma history, and the role of the caregiving relationship in the intergenerational transmission of psychopathology and adverse childhood experiences.
