People

The Child Self-Regulation Lab, under the direction of Dr. Karen Milligan, is made up of graduate students, undergraduate thesis students, staff, and volunteers with interests and backgrounds in psychology and related disciplines (e.g., public health). We work in collaboration with community members, service providers, policy makers and researchers to promote the well-being of children, parents, and communities.
