Research Overview

My research interests focus primarily on the role of self-critical cognition in the development and continuation of both suicidal and nonsuicidal self-injurious thoughts and behaviors during adolescence. In addition, I am interested more broadly in examining changes along emotional, cognitive, and social development during late childhood and early adolescence that confer risk for and protect against the onset of self-injurious thoughts and behaviors.
