Development in Social Context Lab

Faculty Member: Stephanie Reich

Description

The Development in Social Context (DISC) lab is focused on promoting the healthy development of children by understanding and improving their social interactions. Research projects range from interventions with mothers and infants to high school students’ interactions over Facebook. Common among these home, school, and Internet-based research endeavors is the understanding that children are embedded in a social context in which they influence and are influenced by the settings and people around them. This lab is a collaborative effort among faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students interested in understanding and improving the development of children.
