Facades, Floor Plans, and
Furnishings: Evidence-Based Design and Health Outcomes

This talk will review research on the environmental variables that have been studied in the context of healthcare and the challenges to doing this research. Findings from inpatient settings (Andrade & Devlin, 2015), hospital exteriors (Devlin, 2008), as well as psychotherapists’ offices (Nasar & Devlin, 2011) will be highlighted.

Ann Sloan Devlin, PhD, is the May Buckley Sadowski '19 Professor of Psychology at Connecticut College. She has published extensively on healthcare environments, in particular the role of the facility’s appearance in people’s judgments of expected care. Her current research includes perceived control, social support, and positive distractions as mediators of stress in healthcare settings. Another focus of her research is perceptions of psychotherapists' offices. Devlin's fourth book, Transforming the Doctor’s Office: Principles From Evidence-Based Design, focuses on healthcare environments. Another of her books, What Americans Build and Why: Psychological Perspectives, focuses on a range of facility types (residential, educational, medical, office, and retail), and the evidence from psychology that fosters our understanding of behavior in these settings. In January 2016, she became editor-in-chief of the journal Environment and Behavior; she is past Environmental Design Research Association board member and secretary. At Connecticut College, she has received the John S. King Faculty Teaching Award and the Helen Brooks Regan Faculty Leadership Award. She is a fellow of Division 34 of the American Psychological Association.
