Welcome to the Youth Risk and Resilience (YR²) Lab!
Our research focuses on a range of self-harming behaviors in youth, including suicidal (e.g., suicide attempts) and nonsuicidal self-injury (e.g., nonsuicidal cutting). With a foundation in clinical psychological science, our lab is specifically interested in understanding the psychological processes that lead to suicidal and self-injurious behaviors, improving identification and prediction of these behaviors, and identifying modifiable targets for intervention and prevention. Visit the research section of our website to learn more.
The YR² Lab is located in the Department of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology (CSP) at the University of Rochester. For more information about the CSP, visit the department webpage.
