Human Development Speaker Series - Nancy Eisenberg, Ph.D.
Emotion-Related Self-Regulation: Conceptualization and Relations with Socioemotional Functioning
Dr. Eisenberg will discuss the construct of emotion-related regulation and differentiate between effortful control and aspects of control that are less voluntary (reactive control). She will present findings on the relation of effortful control and reactive control to children’s adjustment and social competence, the mediating role of personality resiliency. Finally, she will give a couple of examples of the relation between aspects of parental socialization and children’s regulation and adjustment.
