"Developmental Models of Behavioral Adjustment"

John Bates, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Indiana University

This talk will focus on how individual differences in children?s behavioral and emotional adjustment develop?a complex, practically important question that has driven a vigorous field of research for decades. The talk will represent trends in the field with examples of predictors and processes considered in the speaker?s own research program. Basic predictors include temperament, parenting, family stress, verbal ability, and sleep. More complex models consider how the basic factors combine over the course of development in both linear, additive ways, and nonlinear, interactive ways. Models increasingly involve linkages between predictors and outcomes that are moderated and mediated by third variables. As models of the development of behavioral adjustment become richer, advances in practice can also be envisioned.
