Dr. Schulz's general research
interests are in the areas of emotion and emotion regulatory processes,
family relationships and functioning, and stress and coping processes.
Current research activities include:
- A multi-method study (i.e., observational, psychophysiological,
and self-report) of emotion processes in couple interactions.
Another goal of the study is to identify links between emotion
processes and relationship satisfaction and functioning.
- Studies examining the consequences of particular emotion regulation
strategies or styles (e.g., suppression, mindfulness) on psychological
and physical functioning.
- A study on the effects of marital conflict on children that focuses
on signs of sensitization to conflict as indicated by biases in
emotion recognition, strong emotional responses to novel conflict,
and disruptions in coherence in narrative responses to questions
about interparental conflict.
- A study on the influence of work commitment, decisions about work,
and work stress on individual and family functioning in adulthood.
