Our Lab

ChildThe Child and Adolescent Development Lab was established by Dr. Kimberly Schonert-Reichl in the Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology, and Special Education at the University of British Columbia.

The research conducted by Dr. Schonert-Reichl and the members of the Child and Adolescent Development Lab primarily focuses on social and emotional learning (SEL) and development, with a particular emphasis on discerning the processes and mechanisms that foster children's positive human qualities, such as empathy, optimism, happiness, social responsibility, altruism, and resiliency.
