Alexandra Main published an article in the Journal of Pediatric Psychology (Impact Factor = 3.19). The article is a study of parental empathic accuracy during conflict discussions in parent-adolescent dyads in which the adolescent has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and how empathic accuracy was associated with their glycemic control, diabetes self-management, and depressive symptoms. This article is co-authored with former graduate student Carmen Kho, former undergraduate student Maritza Miramontes, Health Psychology faculty member Deborah Wiebe, and physicians at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (Jennifer Raymond) and Valley Children's Hospital (Nedim Cakan).
