Short Project Description
The School Social Environment Study focuses on economic inequality in high school as it relates to adolescent mental health. In particular, our work together will research social cognitive effects of perceived and material inequality and their role in in later psychopathology risk. As part of our research we invite adolescents, along with their caregivers, to visit the Stress and Development Lab and engage in a variety of tasks and interviews. Research assistants will have opportunities to have direct contact with families in the study, as well as to develop a variety of important research skills.
