Two new grants!

Dr. Cavanagh, Dr. April Thomas, and Dr. Jennifer Eno Louden were awarded a collaborative grant from the National Science Foundation and the Visionary Grant from the American Psychological Foundation in support of their new research project, "Adolescent Social Development During Incarceration." The study will examine the extent to which normative adolescent social development is disrupted by incarceration. We will compare markers of social development in matched samples of incarcerated youth, youth on probation, and non-arrested youth over the course of three years, and track how social development corresponds to internalizing and externalizing behavior.
