Research and Teaching Interests:
Dr. Stanton’s research centers on specifying factors that help and hinder individuals as they adjust to health-related adversity. She is interested in testing theories of stress and coping and related conceptual models in individuals and couples confronting cancer and other chronically stressful experiences. When adults face profound and prolonged stressors, what factors enhance or impede their well-being and health? How can theory and research specifying those factors be translated into approaches to enhance psychological and physical health outcomes during chronically stressful experiences?
