Welcome to RECAP!

RECAP is a research program at Montclair State University devoted to empirical study of the development and early intervention of anxiety disorders across childhood and adolescence.

Below are answers to some key questions about our research program:


At RECAP, we focus on two complementary areas of research:


Consistent evidence shows that anxiety disorders are prevalent, start early, and largely remain unidentified and untreated.  If we better understand developmental pathways to anxiety, we can work to intervene earlier before children experience significant distress. Moreover, while there are a multitude of evidence-based treatments for anxiety disorders, few are reaching the children who need them, particularly those in low-income, ethnic minority households. 


RECAP is led by Dr. Jeremy Fox and a team of graduate and undergraduate students at Montclair State University. Please click here for a description of our team. Please click here for information about volunteering.


RECAP is housed in the Department of Psychology at Montclair State University. Our lab space is located in Dickson Hall.
