Dr. David Schwebel, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His work deals with understanding and preventing child and adolescent unintentional injury. The specific risk factors he focuses on include temperament, overestimation of physical ability, and parent-child relationships. He is also interested in improving injury prevention by using virtual reality to train children in pedestrian safety and improving adult supervision of children at swimming pools and playgrounds.
