Carolina Consortium on Human Development: Fall 2015

The Family as a Context for Development, Continuity, and Change in Externalizing Behaviors in Early Childhood

Schedule and readings can be found here.

The proseminar meetings will be on Monday afternoons from 2:00 – 3:15 PM in the CDS lower level classroom. During this series, we will explore aspects of family relationships and experiences that are associated with the development, maintenance, or change in externalizing behavior across childhood and the pathways through which those associations seem to occur. We will also consider issues of decoupling genetic and environmental influences, and the role of families in the diagnosis, treatment and management of externalizing behaviors.

A graduate seminar associated with the weekly Proseminar presentations at the Carolina Consortium on Human Development will be offered this fall on Mondays from 12:30- 1:45 (please note the new time) and will be led by the faculty chairs. Spaces in this class are limited, and graduate students who are interested are asked to contact Jennifer Coffman at, to express their interest in the seminar.
