Current JobLecturer in Psychology
What question could we try to answer together?:
The main question I want to explore with the students is: How can your parents best help you when you are in pain?
What do we already know about this area?:
We know from our own research that not all parents act in a way that is helpful for their child when they are in pain, and some parental responses can make the pain even worse. But we do not know yet how we can best teach parents to be more helpful when their child is in pain.
I’m excited to hear the students’ own stories on how their parents respond when they are in pain and how helpful they find this response.
What do I need help with from students?:I am looking forward to hear from the student’s own experiences with pain and how their parents have responded to their pain. With this project I want to find out more on1) which parental responses children find helpful and not helpful2) how children could tell their parents what was helpful or not helpful.Together we can develop and test a fun way (maybe something like a quiz?) to teach parents how to be helpful when their child is in pain.
Why you should vote for this project::
I think it will be a lot of fun to share stories with each other and find the best way to teach parents how to help their children when they are in pain.
My Work: Through my work I want to understand what parents, teachers and friends go through when they see a child in pain.
