Laura Miller-Graff

Dr. Miller’s research examines the developmental effects of exposure to violence in childhood. With a focus on children who have multiple traumatic exposures, she investigates resulting patterns of resilience and psychopathology, including the development of posttraumatic stress symptoms. Working within an ecological framework, Dr. Miller’s research seeks to understand how various systems (i.e., individual, family, and community) interact to promote or inhibit healthful development following violence exposure. Dr. Miller has a particular interest in the adaptation and evaluation of trauma assessment and treatment as they relate to international conflict settings.
