THE COURAGE LAB AT YALE
Be Your Own Hero
Self-regulation refers to the ability to monitor and control our own behavior, emotions, or thoughts, altering them in accordance with the demands of the situation. As such, our work has relevance across a range of neuropsychiatric disorders. We apply a range of statistical modeling approaches (multi-level modeling, robust estimation) in our work.
Our team’s work revolves around five core themes: 1) escape and avoidance behavior as a self-regulatory process; 2) threat detection/hazard detection in anxiety and risk-taking contexts (driving simulation); 3) the role of self and self-compassion in self-regulation; 4) mindfulness skills as self-regulatory processes and in treatment; 5) neurofeedback for anxiety and self-regulation.
