Welcome to the Adversity and Adaptation Lab
at the University of California, Riverside!

The Ad Lab is dedicated to understanding how children negotiate and are affected by various kinds of challenges in their worlds, such as community and family violence, poverty, illness, and loss. We believe that understanding these processes will help us to inform the development and implementation of effective prevention, intervention, and policy efforts to help children, their families, and the communities in which they live.
