Welcome to the Nock Lab at Harvard University!

Professor Nock is hoping to accept one Clinical Science Graduate Student for the 2017-2018 academic year; we encourage you to review the information available on our department's website and apply.

The primary goal of our research is to advance the understanding of why people engage in behaviors that are harmful to themselves, with a special emphasis on suicide, self-injury, and other forms of direct self-harm. Our research is multidisciplinary and uses a range of methodological approaches to better understand how these behaviors develop, how to predict their occurrence, and ultimately how to prevent them.
