Welcome to the Adolescent Relationships and Risk Behavior lab!

The Adolescent Relationships and Risk Behavior lab is located in the Department of Applied Psychology in the BouvĂ© College of Health Sciences at Northeastern University (NU). Directed by Dr. Christie Rizzo, our lab works to develop effective interventions to prevent adolescent dating violence, including programs targeted to youth in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. In addition to in-person interventions, our lab is also interested in developing personalized, mobile interventions.

Dr. Rizzo is a core member of the Doctoral and MS programs in counseling psychology at NU. The lab welcomes both graduate and undergraduate students to participate in our work.
