Dr. Stephanie B. Richman teaches introductory psychology, social psychology, social cognition and skills in psychology. She also teaches a first year experience course on How to Spot a Liar, combining her interest in social deduction board games and crime dramas with her psychology background.

Richman has an active research lab, broadly focused in the areas of the self-concept, social rejection and relationships. More specifically, she is interested in the clarity and stability of the self-concept; how do people form their identities and what types of situations might lead them to expand or modify their sense of who they are? Additionally, she studies the positive and negative consequences of relationships; what beneficial effects do others have on us and what happens when the need to belong is thwarted?

Richman also co-leads a study abroad program with Dr. Clare Gross. In this program, students take a course at BW which combines aspects of psychology and communication across cultures, and then spend 16 days exploring Japan. The trip includes visits to Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Kyoto, Nara and Hiroshima.
