Loss, Trauma, and Emotion Lab

Director: George Bonanno

(212) 678-3817

The lab is devoted to the question of how humans cope with loss, potential trauma, and other forms of extreme life events. For the past 20 years, our research has attempted to document the variety of outcomes people show in response to such events as well as the factors that predict these outcomes. We have been especially interested in advancing research and theory about resilience in the face of extreme adversity, and the salutary role played by personality, emotion, and coping and emotional flexibility in moderating how aversive events impact our lives.
