Spedbarnsnettverket vil hvert år ta initiativ til en nasjonal spedbarnskonferanse for å samles om sentral ny kunnskap på feltet. Årets konferanse er lagt til Litteraturhuset
og vil ha to amerikanske gjester som hovedforedragsholdere
Although resilience is usually thought to reside in individuals, developmental studies find that characteristics of the social context may be better predictors of individual successful development. Less competent children in low-risk conditions consistently do worse than more competent children in high-risk conditions. Risk is a complex multifactor construct that goes beyond single factors such as poverty or single parenthood. Defining resilience offers the opportunity to explore the many influences on human mental health within a unified theoretical model of development.
Professor Arnold Sameroff og forsker og kliniker Susan
Arnold Sameroff is a developmental psychologist with a primary interest in the factors that contribute to mental health and psychopathology. He is engaged in a number of longitudinal
projects with infants, school-age children, adolescents, and young adults to examine the effects of family, community, school and peer group on social-emotional and academic success using an ecological model of development. He is examining the transactional relations between child characteristics and parent behavior and belief systems, and between parent characteristics and their ethnic, socioeconomic, and neighborhood backgrounds.
Susan McDonough is involved in research, teaching, and clinical work with families of young children. Her research program follows 260 infants and their families throughout the first four years of the children's lives. These studies explore how environmental risk factors and parent-infant relationship problems mediate the connection between early behavior
problems and later emotional, social, and cognitive functioning.
