My interests mainly focus on identifying risk and resilience factors that promote adjustment after the experience of bereavement and psychological trauma. I am especially interested in how different types of events effect emotional expression and regulation, the ability to enact self-defining roles in identity maintenance and disruption, and subsequent post-event adjustment. I am principally interested in the implication of this research for current theories about adjustment to adversity and developing interventions to prevent pathological reactions.
