The Social Learning and Development Lab (SLDL) led by dr. Hae Yeon Lee studies social and emotional experiences of adolescence in the contemporary developmental contexts. We are deeply curious about how young people navigate their social milieu, and what they think and feel. We are also passionate about leveraging psychological theories and practices to transform everyday social and emotional experiences of adolescents and emerging adults into more positive directions.

As one important goal, we collaborate to design and test wise psychological intervention programs for youth to promote healthier social emotional development in ever more diverse educational contexts. To reach this goal, we work with, and learn from young people to discover deeper insights on their everyday experiences.
