Welcome to the Children Adapting to Stress and Adversity (CASA) Lab website! Under the direction of Dr. Catherine DeCarlo Santiago, we are committed to research that improves our understanding of how children and families manage stressful circumstances and how we can use that knowledge to design helpful programs that promote resilience. We are affiliated with the Clinical Psychology Graduate Program in the Department of Psychology at Loyola University Chicago. We hope this website will be helpful in learning more about our team and the work we do. Please let us know if you’d like to get involved, and thanks for visiting our website!
