Emily E. Bernstein, Ph.D. (she/her/hers)
Emily Bernstein completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at Harvard University and is now a Hope Fellow in psychology with the Center for OCD and Related Disorders (CORD) at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Her research centers on transdiagnostic mechanisms in the development and treatment of emotional disorders. Her current work focuses on identifying modifiable causal mechanisms contributing to emotion dysregulation and developing novel interventions (e.g., brief interventions, digital tools, and health behaviors) to target these processes.
Emily worked with Vera beginning in 2010 as an undergraduate research assistant in the lab of Professor Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, when Vera was a graduate student at Yale University. Under Vera's mentorship, she received independent funding to complete an honor's thesis experimentally examining the effects of emotion labeling on emotion regulation. Results were presented at a national conference and published in Cognition and Emotion.
