As a clinical psychologist, Schoenleber’s program of research focuses on the motivational nature of emotion and its connection with personality in the onset and maintenance of psychopathology. Much of her research examines how shame – a self-conscious emotion that people experience when unwanted outcomes are attributed to personal inadequacies – contributes to a wide range of mental and physical health outcomes (e.g., self-injurious behavior, personality disorders). As part of this work, Schoenleber is also developing and examining the transdiagnostic utility of cognitive-behavioral treatments that target shame.

As an avid football fan, Schoenleber also conducts the NFL Fandom Study, which launched during the 2015 regular season. The NFL Fandom Study explores the qualities, experiences and behaviors of football fans – especially, but not limited to, Green Bay Packers fans.
