Optimizing College Student Well-Being through Research

Welcome to the Holt Research Lab! Here you will find more information about current and previous research conducted by Trinity College undergraduates and Associate Professor of Psychology, Laura Holt. There is also information for students who are interested in graduate school for clinical or counseling psychology.
