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
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 childrens executive functioning skills at scale.
