Lab Members

The Cultural-Existential Psychology Lab is centered in the Psychology Building, Rooms 520 & 526, on the University of Arizona campus. The lab is run by Dr. Sullivan's two current graduate students.

 

ISAAC F. YOUNG

Isaac Young received his BA in Psychology from University of Kansas and his MA in Social Psychology and Program Evaluation from Claremont Graduate University. His research interests are diverse, but revolve around the ways that modern individuals cope with threats to themselves, their wellbeing, or others around them. He's interested in the processes surrounding perceptions of victims, and is working to reconcile the seemingly disparate phenomena of victim blaming and competitive victimhood. He's also involved in research on the cultural bases of negative emotions (e.g., guilt, shame, and anxiety) and the functions that these emotions serve. Finally, he's embarking on an exploration of how individuals’ trait and state level of reflexivity relates to their resilience to psychological threats and commitment to cultural worldviews.
