Welcome to the UWM Child Stress and Coping Lab (CSCL) webpage! Our lab is led by W. Hobart Davies, PhD (hobart@uwm.edu), and is within the Psychology Department at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Our lab broadly conducts research addressing issues related to the coping and adaptation of children and families experiencing extreme stress, such as pediatric chronic illness.

On this website you can find information on ongoing research projects, current and past students, recent student publications and posters, and resources for becoming a member of the lab!

Note: We are accepting Clinical Psychology Doctorate Applications for the Child Stress and Coping Lab for the 2021-2022 school year. Please see the Psychology Department Website for more information: https://uwm.edu/psychology/graduate/phd-program/clinical-psychology/
