Dr. Lourdes Portales Dale, who joined the faculty in 2004, is a clinical child psychologist licensed in Connecticut. Her research is focused on emotion regulation, which she conceptualizes as having both a psychophysiological and temperamental component. Her research has focused on infants with these difficulties and hypersensitivities, termed regulatory disordered (RD). Her research has also focused on other factors that may negatively influence the emotion regulation abilities of children, such as the experience of trauma and viewing of negative content in television commercials. Lastly, her research has focused on the potential ameliorative impact of yoga for women with emotion regulation difficulties.
