Dr. Sarah Gray is a licensed clinical psychologist interested in understanding relationship-based and parenting processes that support young children’s optimal development in contexts of family and community violence. She employs a diverse approach to measuring these processes, including narrative measures, behavioral coding, physiological indicators, and qualitative methodologies, in order to understand how cognition, affect, behavior, biology, and the environment interact to predict young children’s outcomes under stress. She also uses a community-engaged research approach to support children and caregivers in community settings.
