|Dr. Davies' broad area of interest lies in children's socio-emotional adaptation and maladaptation within the context of close interpersonal relationships, especially in family contexts. His three major research aims include: (a) delineating the processes (e.g., emotional reactivity, coping, appraisals) underlying links between family and interparental discord and children's social and emotional adjustment; (b) examining the effects on interparental conflict on children in the context of broader family relationships and systems; and (c) charting familial and psychosocial pathways responsible for the risk posed by parental distress and maladjustment (e.g., parental depressive symptoms, alcohol problems). His secondary interest lies in understanding the developmental nature, causes, and sequelae of adolescent romantic relationships.

|Dr. Harold's interests fall into two primary domains. First, he is interested in the role of family environment, especially marital and parent-child conflict, in accounting for the onset and development of children's emotional and behavioral problems. Specifically, he is interested in the role of children's perceptions of parent and parent-child interaction as they relate to the development of children's depressive symptoms and aggressive behaviors. He is also keenly interested in the different ways in which boys and girls respond to and cope with daily family stress, as well as the role of possible protective factors such as support from siblings, peers and other adults (e.g. a teacher) in reducing the negative impact of aversive family events. Second, he is interested in methodological issues associated with the analysis of longitudinal family data.

|Dr. Maxwell's research interests are in the areas of research methodology, statistics, and individual differences especially in the domains of abilities and intelligence. His research includes statistical analyses of discrimination in employment selection, college admissions, and salary administration. Dr. Maxwell's teaching interests span courses in research methodology, statistics, structural equation modeling, tests and measurement, and differential psychology.|
