The Children’s Emotions Lab at Virginia Tech!

In the Children’s Emotions Lab, we strive to understand young children’s emotions – how they learn to control their emotions and how caregivers support their children’s emotional development.  Because caregivers are so important to children’s lives, we also explore caregiver characteristics that relate to how they interact their children.

We are currently accepting graduate students.
