The Life Events Lab explores a broad research area we refer to as threat management. Our work in this area examines how people manage uncertainty, prepare for bad news, give bad news to others, and generally deal with difficult life experiences. Many of the studies in the Life Events Lab address health issues, including medical decision-making, health communication, and patient-doctor relationships. Please browse our site and feel free to contact us with any questions about the lab or our research.
