About me/my research:

My current research focus pertains to a) the role of parental attention to child pain in understanding emotion regulation and associated behavioural responses, b) the moderating role of parental behaviours for the relationship between child pain catastrophizing and child pain outcomes, c)antecedents and consequences of parental distress in the context of child pain and d) child and parental factors influencing child pain expression.
