We conduct research in a variety of areas, particularly focusing on how people understand, react to, and cope with intense emotional reactions in ways that either promote or inhibit their well-being. Many of us explore this in the contexts of anxiety disorders and post-traumatic functioning. Many of us also explore the relevance of cultural and contextual factors in these phenomena, with a focus on helping people thrive in the face of discrimination and racism. We emphasize both basic research and clinical application, with particular attention to dissemination, therapy, and addressing barriers to care.
