Welcome to the Family Research Lab


Our goal is to better understand family relationships and children’s well-being. We are particularly interested in emotions-emotional expression and regulation, emotion socialization, stress, conflict, and closeness. Our current projects investigate parent-child conflict, family stress, and emotional expression in parent-child and marital relationships.


Please contact Dr. Jackie Nelson (email, 972-883-4478) or our staff
(email, 972-883-4122) with questions about the lab.
