Welcome to the Transforming Trauma and Mental Health Laboratory!

Research in the Transforming Trauma and Mental Health Laboratory focuses on alleviating the mental health effects of interpersonal trauma by developing and testing novel interventions for trauma-exposed populations. We are also interested in the impact of African American culture on trauma recovery and the use of technology to deliver mental health interventions. Populations of interest include women, military veterans, and ethnically diverse individuals.


To improve post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment outcomes, reduce mental health stigma, and increase treatment engagement among individuals with PTSD.
