Research Interests

Our laboratory focuses on the maintenance and treatments of anxiety disorders across the lifespan. Maintenance factors of interest in our lab include cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal factors. Our laboratory primarily (a) conducts laboratory based studies which examine family interactions in children with anxiety disorders or maintenance factors in adults with anxiety disorders (b) conducts questionnaire based studies of interpersonal dynamics and cognitive-behavioral factors that are related to anxiety disorders, and (c) develops novel treatments for children, adolescents, and adults with anxiety disorders. We are currently working on developing a family-based emotion-focused treatment for young children with anxiety disorders. We are also interested in the ways in which life events, such as having a parent leave for military deployment, may effect the family and possibly induce anxiety symptoms. Finally, we are interested in the role that culture may play in family dynamics in children with anxiety disorders.
