Katlyn Garr

Undergraduate Lab Supervisor


I am a senior at VCU majoring in psychology and minoring in sociology. I am interested in understanding how internalizing symptoms can stem from pediatric chronic illnesses. In addition, I am interested in investigating how family roles come into play and how families cope with a sudden pediatric diagnosis. My undergraduate honors thesis examines how parent stress affects child anxiety and depression in childhood cancer patients. In the future I hope to pursue a doctorate in clinical psychology.
