Laureen received her Ph.D. in Applied Developmental Psychology from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2000 and has served as the Assistant Director of the CSC since 2003. Her research focuses on parenting and the development of children’s emotion regulation in families exposed to high levels of adversity.
