Research Interests for Jorgianne I. Robinson

Research Interests: Hoyle

    My primary research focuses on the influence of rejection or exclusion experiences on self-regulation and self-esteem. Additionally, I am very interested in the complex interplay between self-evaluative and social comparative processes.
    Recently, I have also developed great respect for meta-analytic investigations of social psychological findings and social policy-relevant practices. Accordingly, another one of my academic interests has become research synthesis, broadly-applied.         This semester I am conducting my dissertation research, examining the influence of sustained focus on rejection cues on self-evaluative and self-regulatory outcomes.
