Dr. Deborah Casper
Dr. Casper’s Child and Adolescent Peer Relations and Interactions (CAPRI) Research Lab involves research at the interface of traditionally “positive” (e.g. friendships) and “negative” (e.g. antipathetic relationships, enmities, victimization, bully/victim relations) adolescent and emerging adult peer relationships and interactions. A more specific focus is on the different roles that members of the peer group play when aggression or bullying occurs in the school context and the social-psychological implications of these interactions for the peer group members.
