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. We emphasize both basic research and clinical application.
