Welcome to the Development & Psychopathology Laboratory!
The D&P Lab is located at the Center for Children and Families, and is part of the Department of Psychology at the University of Notre Dame. Dr. Kristin Valentino is the director.
Guiding our research is a developmental psychopathology perspective, which emphasizes the interface between normal and atypical development. We integrate methods from developmental, clinical, and cognitive psychology, and utilize a multiple-levels-of analysis approach towards the study of child development and child psychopathology. We also aim to develop translational research interventions to foster healthy development among maltreating families.
