Dr. Shen earned his B.S. degree in psychology at Zhejiang University, a M.Ed. in developmental & educational psychology from East China Normal University, and a Ph.D. in psychology at the University of Alabama. 


This seminar will introduce a systematic approach to the research in pediatric injury prevention, from primary prevention of unintentional injuries to tertiary prevention (i.e., rehabilitation) following pediatric trauma. Dr. Jiabin Shen will incorporate his research projects in both school settings and clinical settings as real-life examples on how to implement this approach, including the use of virtual reality for cognitive rehabilitation among pediatric patients with moderate/severe traumatic brain injuries. At the conclusion of the seminar, the audience will be able to learn more about how theory-driven and technology-assisted behavioral interventions can be implemented to promote the health and quality of life among children and adolescents both in the U.S. and globally.

We hope you can join us for this interesting seminar!
