The JK Life-span Development Lab members study social and personality processes for developmental psychopathology


The JK Life-span Development Lab members (Assistant Professor Jungmeen Kim along with Eirini Papafratzeskakou, Diana Riser, Greg Longo, Kati Ann Leonberger, and Megan Lyons) study social and personality processes as risk and resilience factors for developmental psychopathology. Their current projects focus specifically on religiosity, self-regulation, and self-system as protective factors for mental health problems among high-risk children with child maltreatment and for health risk behaviors among normative samples of adolescents (see http://www.psyc.vt.edu/labs/jklifespan/ for more information).
