The Self Development Lab (SDL)

SDL image


SDL is run by Professor Peony Fhagen-Smith and is currently located in Knapton 306.

Various topics are explored in this lab including self-portrait development, the self-conscious emotion humiliation, and cultural identity development.  Both quantitative and qualitative methodologies are used in this lab.  Our research also incorporates developmental and multicultural approaches and considers both universal processes and individual differences based on cultural factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, and age.  Our research strives to inform our understanding of social and emotional health, adjustment, and vulnerabilities among adolescents and emerging adults.
