At the CARE lab, we study attachment in family and counseling relationships. We are interested in finding out what helps both children and adults be more securely attached and understanding the links between attachment and how relationships work. Also, we conduct research on the development of emotion regulation in children. We are interested in cultural factors  related to parenting and examine parenting across diverse contexts. Finally, we conduct research on the process and outcome of treatment in preventive interventions with families who have infants or children, as well as in individual counseling with adults. CARE is committed to giving back to the community. As a way of giving back to the Community, Dr. Susan Woodhouse is providing a 10-week Circle of Security-Parenting sessions at the Granite Street Head Start, which is a video based parenting education/parenting reflection group.

We welcome applications for interested research assistants.
