Bio

Professor Larson's research is in the area of social psychology. In particular, she examines the social cognition of close relationships, including how members of intimate relationships can help (or hinder) one another in regulating their emotions and pursuing their goals. Most recently, she has begun to examine implicit attitudes toward romantic partners, and how this index can offer distinct insights compared to explicit reports of relationship satisfaction.

PSYC 140 Social Psychology
In this introduction to psychological aspects of human social behavior, we discuss such topics as the relationship between attitudes and behavior, how people judge one another, interpersonal and group influence processes, and relations between individuals and groups, with strong emphasis on real-world applications. We also introduce scientific methods and formal theories for studying social behavior.
