Welcome to the Reactivity Lab at TCNJ!

The Reactivity Lab investigates the role of emotional reactivity in the development and treatment of internalizing disorders, such as depression and anxiety. Students who work in the lab are trained to analyze data from a treatment study comparing family therapy to individual therapy for suicidal adolescents. Lab members analyze voice data to examine treatment-related-change in the emotional arousal of suicidal teens during an interview about their attachment relationship with their parents. The Reactivity Lab is directed by Dr. Joanna Herres.
