Emotion Regulation, Coping, and Decision Making: Three linked skills for preventing externalizing problems in adolescence – Child Development

ABSTRACT Research on executive control during the teenage years points to shortfalls in emotion regulation, coping, and decision making as three linked capabilities associated with youth’s externalizing behavior problems. Evidence gleaned from a detailed review of the literature makes clear that improvement of all three capabilities is critical to help young people better navigate challenges and … [Read More] Emotion Regulation, Coping, and Decision Making: Three linked skills for preventing externalizing problems in adolescence – Child Development

The Function of Executive Function: Everyday manifestations of regulated thinking in preschool settings.” Early Childhood Education Journal

ABSTRACT Executive function (EF) encompasses higher-order mental processes necessary for the conscious control of thought and action in the service of goals. Once thought not to apply to children at all, EF is now at the center of a burgeoning body of research on young children over the last 10–15 years indicating that it is … [Read More] The Function of Executive Function: Everyday manifestations of regulated thinking in preschool settings.” Early Childhood Education Journal

Maternal Executive Function, Heart Rate, and EEG Alpha Reactivity Interact in the Prediction of Harsh Parenting – Journal of Family Psychology

ABSTRACT Do physiological and behavioral performance indicators of effortful cognitive self-regulation converge additively or interactively in their statistical prediction of individual differences in harsh parenting? To answer this question, we examined heart rate (HR) and electroencephalography alpha (?) reactivity during executive function (EF) tasks, along with observed and self-reported indicators of harsh parenting. A socioeconomically … [Read More] Maternal Executive Function, Heart Rate, and EEG Alpha Reactivity Interact in the Prediction of Harsh Parenting – Journal of Family Psychology

London Education and Inclusion Project (LEIP): Results from a Cluster-Randomized Controlled Trial of an Intervention to Reduce School Exclusion and Antisocial Behavior – Journal of Youth and Adolescence

ABSTRACT School exclusion as a disciplinary measure remains a controversial issue. In spite of numerous attempts to reduce this practice, no solutions with documented effectiveness exist. This article reports results of a cluster-randomized controlled field trial carried out in 36 schools across London. The trial is an independent evaluation of a 12-week-long intervention, Engage in … [Read More] London Education and Inclusion Project (LEIP): Results from a Cluster-Randomized Controlled Trial of an Intervention to Reduce School Exclusion and Antisocial Behavior – Journal of Youth and Adolescence

Event-related Potential Measures of Executive Functioning from Preschool to Adolescence – Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology

ABSTRACT Executive functions are a collection of cognitive abilities necessary for behavioural control and regulation, and are important for school success. Executive deficits are common across acquired and developmental disorders in childhood and beyond. This review aims to summarize how studies using event-related potential (ERP) can provide insight into mechanisms underpinning how executive functions develop … [Read More] Event-related Potential Measures of Executive Functioning from Preschool to Adolescence – Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology

Mother-Child Interactions & Externalizing Behavior Problems in Preschoolers over Time: Inhibitory control as a mediator –

ABSTRACT Previous research has shown links between parenting and externalizing behavior problems in young children over time. Associations between inhibitory control, one of the executive functions, and externalizing behavior problems are widely established as well. Yet, the role of inhibitory control in the maintenance and change of externalizing behavior problems over time remains unclear. We … [Read More] Mother-Child Interactions & Externalizing Behavior Problems in Preschoolers over Time: Inhibitory control as a mediator –

Does Preschool Self-Regulation Predict Later Behavior Problems in General or Specific Problem Behaviors? – Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology

ABSTRACT Findings from prior research have consistently indicated significant associations between self-regulation and externalizing behaviors. Significant associations have also been reported between children’s language skills and both externalizing behaviors and self-regulation. Few studies to date, however, have examined these relations longitudinally, simultaneously, or with respect to unique clusters of externalizing problems. The current study examined … [Read More] Does Preschool Self-Regulation Predict Later Behavior Problems in General or Specific Problem Behaviors? – Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology

The Effect of Negative Affect on Cognition: Anxiety, not anger, impairs executive function – Emotion (APA)

ABSTRACT It is often assumed that negative affect impairs the executive functions that underlie our ability to control and focus our thoughts. However, support for this claim has been mixed. Recent work has suggested that different negative affective states like anxiety and anger may reflect physiologically separable states with distinct effects on cognition. However, the … [Read More] The Effect of Negative Affect on Cognition: Anxiety, not anger, impairs executive function – Emotion (APA)

Examining the Regulatory and Reactive Temperamental Characteristics as Predictors of Low Income Preschool Children’s Executive Function – Current Psychology

ABSTRACT The current study is an examination of low income children’s reactive and regulatory temperamental characteristics as predictors of their executive function, with a particular focus on children’s regulatory temperament (i.e., inhibitory control and attentional focusing) as moderators of associations between reactive temperament (i.e., negative emotionality) and executive function. Participants were 291 children (159 boys) … [Read More] Examining the Regulatory and Reactive Temperamental Characteristics as Predictors of Low Income Preschool Children’s Executive Function – Current Psychology

Who’s at Risk? Expanding the categorical understanding of children at risk of social exclusion through measures of self-esteem – Nordic Social Work Research

ABSTRACT A strong focus on early intervention involves broad categories by which to assess children at risk of social marginalisation. Most of these categories relate to family characteristics and qualities. In this article, we explore social vulnerability from children’s perspectives and consider whether their self-esteem provides evidence for risk of social marginalisation, here understood as … [Read More] Who’s at Risk? Expanding the categorical understanding of children at risk of social exclusion through measures of self-esteem – Nordic Social Work Research

Emotional Control Mediates the Association Between Dimensions of Perfectionism and Worry in Children – Child Psychiatry & Human Development

ABSTRACT Previous research has shown that perfectionism predicts for increased worry in children. Theoretically, children with high levels of perfectionism may show a decreased ability to control their emotions during times of perceived failure. Children may then worry as a maladaptive attempt to cope with intense emotions. The current study sought to test the mediating … [Read More] Emotional Control Mediates the Association Between Dimensions of Perfectionism and Worry in Children – Child Psychiatry & Human Development

Developmental Differences in Infants’ Fairness Expectations From 6 to 15 Months of Age – Child Development

ABSTRACT The present research investigated the developmental trajectory of infants’ fairness expectations from 6 to 15 months of age (N = 150). Findings revealed a developmental transition in infants’ fairness expectations between 6 and 12 months, as indicated by enhanced visual attention to unfair outcomes of resource distribution events (a 3:1 distribution) relative to fair outcomes (a 2:2 distribution). … [Read More] Developmental Differences in Infants’ Fairness Expectations From 6 to 15 Months of Age – Child Development
