Methodogical Innovations in Psychological Science: "Maternal Regulation of Child Biobehavioral Stress" [Postponed]

Presenters: 

Amie Hane, Ph.D.
Williams College

Description: 

Amie Hane’s work focuses on the social regulation of reactivity to stress and novelty, including examination of 1) the role of early-occurring maternal caregiving behavior in shaping stress physiology and behavioral reactivity; and 2) the dynamic interplay between quality of caregiver-child interactions and child temperament in shaping the development of risk and resilience across development. Topics Studied in the Temperament, Emotion, and Relationship Processes Laboratory (TERP Lab ) include: Maternal caregiving behavior, maternal expressed emotion, interpretive bias, infant/child temperament, neuroendocrine and cardiac reactivity to stress, behavioral inhibition, behavioral exuberance, social competence, and health and behavioral risk from infancy through middle childhood.

Presented by the Clinical Psychology Colloquium Series.
