Trauma exposure, emotion regulation and cognitive skills in early childhood: Prospective and longitudinal examination of the mechanisms of adjustment

The Dole building on a sunny summer day with blue sky and clouds.

The project will determine how dimensions of trauma exposure (frequency, chronicity, and severity) impact emotion regulation and working memory skills in early childhood-aged youth. Using physiological, observational, and self-report data, the project will account for the role of pre-trauma functioning and parent emotion regulation and model the relations between the study variables over time.
