In the wake of today's horrific school shooting, a University of Michigan child psychologist is available to reporters to discuss how children deal with tragic events, what parents can do to help their kids understand (or avoid) this terrible news, and what kids who have suffered or witnessed a tragedy need.

She is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the U-M Medical School. Her research focuses on infant/early childhood mental health; evaluation of relationship-focused interventions for high-risk families with young children, such as military families; and longitudinal studies of parenting in at-risk families.
