Joan Kub Lab

  • Research in the Joan Kub Lab focuses on two primary areas. The first is the connection between violence and substance use and abuse, particularly in young people. We examine topics that include domestic violence, dating violence and bullying, with a special focus on preventing these issues in schools. Our second key area of interest is the role of spirituality in health, recovery and end-of-life care. This includes patient preferences, the roles played by loved ones and patient-family decision making.

    Research Areas: community health, spirituality, substance abuse, domestic violence, decision making, bullying
