Welcome!

The THRIVE Lab, directed by Brianna C. Delker, PhD, is part of the Department of Psychology at Western Washington University. Lab research examines the psychological impact of trauma and abuse perpetrated within close relationships. This includes abuse experienced in childhood relationships with caregivers, and also in adult relationships. In her work, Dr. Delker is particularly interested in understanding the enduring effects of childhood trauma across the lifespan, with a focus on the experiences of young adults and women transitioning to parenthood.
