Coping and the related phenomenon of self-regulation are important constructs in much of our work. Several recently completed studies documented the development of self-regulation skills in students over time and its impact on their personal and academic success. Another project studied a large cohort of OEF/OIF/OND veterans following their discharge to better document their mental and physical health upon return to civilian life. A current NIAAA-funded study is testing the efficacy of two mindfulness/yoga-based interventions to develop emotion regulation skills in college students.
