Areas of Research/Scholarly Activity

Research interests are in interaction of educational psychology and social/emotional development. Specifically, I focus on responses to bullying and environmental and cognitive factors that aid resiliency. I am also interested in the motivations for bullying and its relationship to academic problems, conduct disorders, suicide, and depression. My research emphasis is in the identification of cognitive and environmental factors that can mitigate negative effects of both bullies and victims of bullying. In current research I am examining how schools can help teachers and children develop adaptive coping responses to bullying and other crisis situations, as well as investigating environments where bullying commonly takes place such as on the way to/from school, school bus, and in cyberspace.
