How to contact me


[von Baeyer


Since 2011 I have lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba, but continue my association with the University of Saskatchewan. I am retired from my faculty position but continue to be active in research, teaching, and advocacy related to pain in childhood.

My research interests are mainly in the assessment and treatment of recurrent pain in children (e.g., stomach aches, headaches), and in measurement of pain in children. Recently I have worked mainly on measurement of pain intensity by self-report in preschool-age children.

See my list of publications and theses supervised to find out about my recent projects and collaborators. 

I am one of five co-founders in 2002 of Pain in Child Health, a cross-Canada and international strategic research training program sponsored by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research with the goal of developing a community of researchers in pediatric pain. It is funded 2002-2016.

From 2005 to 2014 I edited Pediatric Pain Letter which is published by the Special Interest Group on Pain in Childhood, International Association for the Study of Pain

In 1996-97 and again in 2000-01 and in 2004, I was on sabbatical in the Pain Research Unit at Sydney Children's Hospital in Australia; much of my research has been in collaboration with that group. 

One of my PhD students, Carrie Hicks, carried out an award-winning randomized study of internet-based psychological treatment for headaches and stomach aches in children and adolescents. The treatment manual is based on one written by Patrick McGrath for his Family Help program at Dalhousie University. More information about this study and about the treatment manual is available at . Her study was published in Journal of Pediatric Psychology, 2006, 31(7), 721-734. Here is the abstract.

Clinical psychology training

A past area of interest was in the organization and accreditation of clinical psychology training programs. From 1994-98 I was a member of the Accreditation Panel of the Canadian Psychological Association. I have been associated with CPA- and/or APA-accredited clinical psychology doctoral and internship programs as a graduate student (1971-78), intern (1974-75), internship director (1982-89), faculty member (1978-present), and director of clinical psychology training (1997-2004). The Graduate Program in Clinical Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan which I directed 1997-2004  is accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association.
