About The Social-Health Psychology Program
Each faculty member has a distinctive research program, but they share a common interest in understanding how people’s personality and social environments shape their psychological and physical health. The research labs in the social-health program have particular strengths in topics such as interpersonal relationships, health behavior, stigma, stress, and well-being.
