Self-Regulation in Childhood: Conceptualization and Correlates

"Self-Regulation in Childhood: Conceptualization and Correlates"

Abstract: Recently there has been an increasing appreciation of self-regulation in children's socioemotional functioning in both typical and atypical samples. Dr. Eisenberg will discuss different conceptualizations of top-down self-regulation and differentiate between effortful control and reactive control (aspects of control that are less voluntary), and she will explain how these constructs are typically operationalized. She will also discuss hypothesized and empirical relations of self-regulation and reactive (bottom-up) control to adjustment and maladjustment, emphasizing temperamentally based effortful control, bidirectional relations, and mediators and moderators of these relations.

Co-Sponsored with the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center
