Teresa Marin

picTeresa is currently pursuing doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at York University, where she joined the Human Pain Mechanisms Lab in September of 2014.  Her work with Dr. Joel Katz examines the relationship between traumatic events and chronic pain, as well as factors that shape this relationship.  She is interested in determining whether specific characteristics of a traumatic event influence whether a person will develop chronic pain following an exposure.  For example, the impact of a traumatic event on chronic pain may depend on factors such as the (a)  specific type of trauma (e.g., emotional versus physical abuse), (b) duration or frequency of the exposure (e.g., one-time versus chronic or recurrent), and (c) presence or absence of bodily damage or injury.  Her doctoral dissertation will examine these research questions in the context of a systematic review.  Teresa holds a Research Studentship through The Ontario Mental Health Foundation.
