Nicole Campione-Barr

Research Interests: 

My research interests focus on family relationships during adolescence and how multiple relationships impact one another as well as how they impact adolescent development and adjustment. My current areas of interest are: what adolescents disclose about to mothers, fathers, and siblings, the content of siblings' conflicts during adolescence and how they impact relationship quality and individual adjustment, the impact of sibling relationships and sibling ordinal status on adolescent autonomy, and interaction and communication differences between multiple parent-child dyads within the same family.


Dr. Campione-Barr currently serves as the Director of the Honors Capstone Program and typically teaches some combination of Psych 1030: Orientations to the Psychology Major, Psych 3430: Social Development in Childhood, and Psych 8440: Social and Emotional Development.
