Executive Functioning in Children and Their Caregivers: Implications for Adaptation and Resilience

Colloquium | October 2 | 12:10-1:10 p.m. | 3105 Tolman Hall

 Jelena Obradović, Graduate School of Education, Stanford University

 Department of Psychology

Children who know how to control their impulses, ignore distracting stimuli, manipulate information in the mind, and shift between competing rules tend to thrive in life. Professor Obradović will discuss how good self-regulation skills help children succeed in the school context and review her new research linking executive functioning, stress physiology, and parenting practices. She will also present a novel assessment approach for studying children’s executive functioning skills at scale.
