Welcome to the Perch Lab

The PERCH Lab is dedicated to understanding how different experiences impact children and their families. Our world is filled with a range of positive and challenging experiences, and we seek to understand how these challenging experiences can ‘get under our skin’ and what can help protect individuals who are faced with challenges such as community and family violence, poverty, illness, and loss. Ultimately, our work tries to understand these processes in order to inform the development and implementation of effective prevention, intervention, and policy efforts to help children, their families, and their communities.
