Welcome to the PACCT Research Lab!

We are affiliated with the Clinical Psychology Graduate Program in the Department of Psychology. Our team, directed by Dr. Noni Gaylord-Harden, is composed of graduate students in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. Program at Loyola and undergraduate students who are majoring in Psychology at Loyola. Our research team studies stress, coping, and psychological functioning in African American youth and families. The goal of our community- and school-based research is to improve the lives of African American youth and families.
