|Interparental conflict and internalizing symptoms: the moderating role of positive peer relationships
||This study examined the roles of peer acceptance and friendship quality as moderators of the association between interparental conflict and internalizing symptoms in a longitudinal sample of elementary school children who were initially recruited in ...
|The interaction of student-teacher relationships and mutual friends on academic achievement: the role of perceived competence
||Prior research indicates that children's social relationships are important predictors of later school success. However, research has failed to address how different school relationships, such as those with teachers and peers, work together to predic...
|Peer victimization and aggression across elementary school
||The current study examined peer victimization and aggression across elementary school (K, 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades) using Latent Class Growth Analysis (LCGA). Participants were 2624 kindergartners, 1312 of whom contributed longitudinal data. All data...
|Predicting behavioral outcomes from reactivity and regulation and the role of social preference
||The current study examined the effect of early emotion regulation and reactivity on later behavioral outcomes. Differential forms of reactivity were thought to interact with attentional control to predict internalizing or externalizing behavior. Addi...
|Friendship and risk for internalizing behavior: understanding the selection and socialization of maladaptive behavior
||The present study sought to examine the role of friendship in the link between early individual risk and subsequent internalizing behavior. A model indicating friendship characteristics as mediating mechanisms between early individual risk and subseq...
|Effects of parent-child aggression, maternal warmth and child processing mechanisms on hostile attribution bias
||The present study aimed to expand the current conceptualization of hostile attribution bias (HAB) development by examining the effects of maternal parent-child aggression (PCA) and warmth on HAB development. In addition, child attentional control and...
|Parental monitoring and oppositionality in the context of early parenting behaviors
||The current study examined the effect of parental monitoring on later oppositionality outcomes in the context of early relational parenting behaviors (e.g., maternal warmth and maternal intrusiveness). It was hypothesized that monitoring would modera...
|Temperament and internalizing problems in middle childhood
||This study draws on a developmental psychopathology perspective to examine the cumulative influences of temperament and life stress in the family context on increases in internalizing problems from ages 4 to 7. Data from the Right Track project was u...
|The role of bias in explaining the relation between social preference and depressive symptoms in middle childhood
||Past research indicates that children's social preference is an important predictor of childhood depressive symptoms. Additionally, children's negative self-perceptions have been identified as a significant predictor of childhood depressive symptoms....
|A developmental cascade of early teacher-child relationships: implications for academic performance
||Kindergarten teacher-child relationships have been identified as important and salient contributors to child school success across multiple domains. However, less attention has focused on what early factors impact the development of a positive teache...
|The effects of social fear, maternal warmth, and biological sex on the development of social withdrawal in middle childhood
||Research has demonstrated a relation between the social fear aspect of temperament and the development of behavioral withdrawal. However, discontinuity in this pathway exists, indicating that different factors must influence the extent of the effect ...
|Parent-child co-regulation predicting emotion regulation in early childhood
||The current study examined the importance of co-regulation, defined as the mutual regulatory parent-child process that consists of coordinated emotional expression (Feldman, Greenbaum, & Yirmiya, 1999), on emotion regulation in children across early ...
|Vulnerability in the context of risk: effortful control and maternal depression
||Interactions between child and parent characteristics may result in the development of normal or abnormal behavior. In some contexts, these interactions may shape the likelihood that a child develops internalizing problems. Parent characteristics inc...
|Externalizing subtypes and peer rejection: the impact of a vlose or conflictual teacher-child relationship
||Reactively aggressive and hyperactive-impulsive children have been shown to have a higher risk of being rejected by their peers, which can lead to a multitude of negative outcomes, including psychological and behavioral problems. An environmental fac...
