Career Counseling and Internet Psychology

Dr. Yuliya Lipshits-Braziler

Our research group focuses on two main areas: (a) career development over one’s lifetime and (b) the interface of the Internet and psychology.

In career counseling psychology, our research examines career decision-making processes, how people cope with career indecision, the meaning of work and higher education, career transitions, career barriers, career aspirations, and career development for marginalized social and cultural groups.

In Internet psychology, our research examines identity exploration in cyberspace, adolescents’ prosocial behaviors online, and support-seeking behaviors online. It also examines empathy in online communication, social networking sites, and well-being.
