Emily E. Bernstein, Ph.D. is a Hope Post-Doctoral Fellow in psychology with the Center for OCD and Related Disorders (CORD). She completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at Harvard University. Her research centers on transdiagnostic mechanisms in the development and treatment of emotional disorders. She is particularly interested in emotional flexibility, or why some people struggle with prolonged emotional responses, while others can more quickly adjust to stressors. 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.
