Prof. Dr. Kenneth Dodge and Prof. Dr. Alexander Grob will jointly discuss the topic
Emotion Regulatory Development in Health and Disease: Implications for Mental Health and the Social Environment
with a particular focus on the importance of understanding how emotion regulation develops in children and adolescents, both in typical and atypical cases, and the impact this has on mental health or wider academic and social functions.
In this panel discussion, we aim to highlight the importance of understanding how emotion regulation develops in children and adolescents, both in typical and atypical cases. Furthermore, we aim to consider the impact this has on mental health or wider academic and social functions. The role of the social environment and the potential for interventions to improve outcomes are of similar interest. We invite you to join our panellist’s discussion on how our knowledge from research on child development may contribute to a better understanding of disparities in mental health outcomes and to the question of when such endeavours may fail, respectively, what is still needed to reach population impact and a reduction of disparities.
Moderator: Prof. Dr. Nora M. Raschle (University of Zurich)
