Under the direction of Dr. Lyn
Dahlquist, Ph.D., the Pediatric Psychology Lab at UMBC conducts numerous research projects focusing on acute pain management, pain management interventions, and the role of
parents in children’s distress during stressful medical procedures. Currently we are assessing virtual reality pain management strategies and how effective different types of games are.
The lab's team includes several graduate students and undergraduate research assistants, whom are all trained to comply with strict ethical guidelines on conducting psychological research.
