Associate Professor, Clinical/Community Psychology
Dr. Rohrbeck’s research examines child and adult stress, coping, and psychological outcomes. Specifically, she and her students have been examining the ways that exposure and threat of human made and natural disasters are related to mental health and emergency preparedness behaviors and how those relationships are moderated by demographics and personality characteristics such as self-efficacy. Another current project focuses on the role of distance communication between children and parents when separated (as in military deployments) on child and couple outcomes.
