      I mostly do observations: watching or recording how parents and children behave with each other.
      Sometimes I also just have a conversation with parents and/or children either one on one or in a small group to hear more about their stories.
      Sometimes I also bring in healthy children into our lab and ask them to take part in an experiment where they undergo an uncomfortable task called the cold pressor task: that is a container with cold water and the child is asked to keep their hand in the cold water for as long as they can, but they can take their hand out at any time!

      I do a lot of experimental work: people come to the laboratory and they have to complete a computerised task. Further to this, I do a lot of Psychophysiological work too using brain scanners to understand the brain.

      On a different project, I also work with people were we design clinical trials. So a bit of everything I would say 🙂

      I mostly ask people to answer questions on questionnaires and see how their responses fit together
