"Parenting and Self-Regulation in the Family"

Abstract: In this presentation, I will provide an overview of an ongoing collaborative program of research examining the intergenerational transmission of self-regulation in families across a wide range of contexts. The development of individual differences in cognitive, emotional, behavioral and physiological self-regulation arises from complex transactions between biological and environmental influences. Parenting plays a key role, and is itself influenced by adults’ self-regulation. These family processes can be disrupted by chronic stressors. The emerging literature on parenting and intergenerational transmission of self-regulation is providing new insights for prevention and intervention.
