Welcome to the Reactivity Lab at TCNJ!

The Reactivity Lab, directed by Dr. Joanna Herres, investigates the role of emotional reactivity in the development and treatment of emotional disorders, such as depression and anxiety. Recently, the lab has begun to examine risk of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following campus sexual assault (CSA). For example, we examined whether more intense emotional reactivity predicted more severe PTSD symptoms following CSA.
