About Us


Welcome to the Violence & Trauma Across the Lifespan (ViTAL) Lab!

Our goal is to understand the effects of domestic violence and related forms of traumatic stress on the well-being of women and children of diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds. We use this work to develop, adapt, and test novel programs to reduce the negative effects of violence and promote resilient outcomes.
