Interpersonal Relationships & Developmental Psychopathology Lab

The Interpersonal Relationships & Developmental Psychopathology Lab at Kent State University studies the role of interpersonal relationships in the development of competence and psychopathology during adolescence and young adulthood. For the past few years, we have particularly focused on the role adolescent and young adult sexual/romantic relationships and experiences.
