Social Support and Stress Reduction during Adolescence

What we’re doing.

In collaboration with Dr. Andrew Fuligni, Dr. Adriana Galvan, and Dr. Naomi Eisenberger from The University of California, Los Angeles, we aim to identify how providing social support to others affects adolescents’ own emotional resilience to stress, and which brain processes are involved.

Why it matters.

The insights gained from this project will increase understanding of an important intervention strategy (providing social support) so that it can be applied effectively in technology products to improve youth health.
