East-West, Collectivist-Individualist: A Cross-Cultural Examination of Temperament in Toddlers from Chile, Poland, South Korea, and the U.S.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2017 11;14(4):449-464. Epub 2016 Oct 11.

Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine, USA.

The present study examined toddler temperament across Chilean, South Korean, Polish, and US samples, providing an opportunity to examine both collectivist-individualist and East-West contrasts. The effect of culture on the three factor and 18 dimension scores provided by the Early Childhood Behavior Questionnaire were investigated. Results provide evidence of cross-cultural differences between the four samples. Read More

Disentangling proactive and reactive aggression in children using self-report.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2016 Jul 3;13(4):439-451. Epub 2016 Feb 3.

Developmental Psychology, Leiden University , Leiden , the Netherlands.

The distinction between proactive and reactive functions of aggression is one of the most common divisions when investigating aggression among children and adolescents. To date, self-report is the least used measurement, despite existing literature supporting the view that the best informant regarding internal processes and motives are children themselves. The main aim of this study was to examine the construct and concurrent validity of a new self-report questionnaire, which aims to disentangle acts of reactive vs. Read More

The impact of contextual family risks on prisoners' children's behavioural outcomes and the potential protective role of family functioning moderators.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2016 May 22;13(3):325-340. Epub 2015 Jun 22.

Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge, UK; University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.

Research suggests that children of prisoners have an increased risk for behavioural and emotional problems. However, in a resilience approach, one should expect heterogeneous outcomes and thus apply a contextualized perspective. As this is rarely acknowledged in empirical research, the present study sought to fill this gap using data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing study on 801 children of imprisoned fathers.

The direct way may not be the best way: Children with ADHD and their understanding of self-presentation in social interactions.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2016 Jan 22;13(1):40-51. Epub 2015 Jun 22.

Department of Psychology, University of Salzburg , Hellbrunnerstr. 34, A-5020 Salzburg , Austria.

Knowledge and use of self-presentational tactics is an important social skill. We examined understanding of the function of three different self-presentational tactics (self-promotion, ingratiation and blasting) in 11 8-12-year-old boys with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and 11 matched comparison children. Children were given six different self-presentation stories, two for each one of the three different tactics. Read More

The long-term effectiveness of the International Child Development Programme (ICDP) implemented as a community-wide parenting programme.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2015 Jan 21;12(1):54-68. Epub 2014 Aug 21.

Department of Infection & Population Health, University College London , London , UK.

Short-term effectiveness of the International Child Development Programme (ICDP) for parents in the general population has been studied. The aim of this paper was to investigate the longer term impact of the ICDP programme on parents looking for sustained changes 6-12 months after the programme. For this, a non-clinical caregiver group attending the ICDP programme ( = 79) and a non-attending comparison group ( = 62) completed questionnaires on parenting, psychosocial functioning, and child difficulties before, on completion and 6-12 months after the ICDP programme.

Exploring temperamental differences in infants from the United States of America (US) and the Netherlands.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2015 ;12(1):15-28

Bowdoin College, USA.

This longitudinal study employed the Infant Behavior Questionnaire-Revised in assessing temperamental differences between infants at 6 months (n = 114 US, 184 Dutch) and 12 months (n = 92 US, 172 Dutch) from the United States of America and The Netherlands. Main effects indicated that Dutch infants were rated higher on the Orienting/Regulatory Capacity factor and fine-grained dimensions of Smiling and Laughter, Falling Reactivity, Cuddliness, Low-Intensity Pleasure, and Soothability; whereas US infants received higher ratings on the Negative Affectivity factor and on dimensions of Activity Level, Vocal Reactivity, Fear, Frustration, and Sadness. Cultural differences for Orienting/Regulatory Capacity were more pronounced in early infancy, cultural differences for Fear were stronger in late infancy, and US infants demonstrated higher Duration of Orienting at 12 months only.

Evaluation of the International Child Development Programme (ICDP) as a community-wide parenting programme.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2014 Jan 10;11(1):1-17. Epub 2013 May 10.

Department of Psychology, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway.

Background: Many parenting programmes lack proper evaluation, especially under community-wide implementation.

Objective: Examining the effectiveness of the eight-week International Child Development Programme (ICDP), implemented as a general programme.

Methodology: Non-clinical caregivers attending ICDP ( = 141) and a non-attending community comparison group ( = 79) completed questionnaires on parenting, psychosocial functioning, and child difficulties before and after ICDP course. Read More

Family structure, maternal employment, and change in children's externalizing problem behaviour: Differences by age and self-regulation.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2014 13;11(2):136-158. Epub 2014 Jan 13.

The University of Maryland.

This study used a latent difference score growth model to investigate how changes in family structure (biological father and stepfather residence) and maternal employment are associated with American children's externalizing problem behaviors (EPB) from ages 4 to 10 and whether these associations vary by children's level of self-regulation. For all 4 year old children, living with a biological father at age 4 was associated with reductions in EPB at ages 4-6 and later years, with no variation by child self-regulation. Living with a stepfather at age 4 was associated with higher levels of EPB at age 4; however, for less-regulated children, stepfather residence at ages 4 and 8 was associated with reductions in EPB between ages 4-6 and from 8-10, respectively.

Elementary school children's attentional biases in physical and numerical space.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2013 Jan;10(4):433-448

Department of Neurology, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine ; Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Pennsylvania.

Numbers are conceptualized spatially along a horizontal mental line. This view is supported by mounting evidence from healthy adults and patients with unilateral spatial neglect. Little is known about children's representation of numbers with respect to space. Read More

The Phenotype of Loneliness.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2012 Jul 29;9(4):446-452. Epub 2012 Jun 29.

University of Chicago.

Goossens' (in press) review nicely maps the progression of scientific research from its early focus on loneliness as a dysphoric state that results from the discrepancy between a person's ideal and actual social relationships to its current emphasis on the centrality of loneliness to our very nature as a social species, and he argues that developmental science throughout Europe has a great deal to contribute to our understanding of this construct. He concludes that psychologists should care about research on loneliness for five reasons: (i) it is a well-defined phenotype, (ii) it shows both high stability and individual differences in rates of change across years, (iii) it has adaptive value and evolutionary significance, (iv) it has a genetic substrate that is moderated by social environments, and (v) it has self-maintaining features that can lead to adverse mental health outcomes. Goossen's (2012) review is rife with information and ideas. Read More

Don't throw the bathwater in with the baby.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2012 ;9(4):453-458

Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

The Presidential Address of the European Association of Developmental Psychology this year concerned how genes and environments interplay to shape loneliness and other developmental psychological relevant outcomes. This is a very welcome. However, when developmental psychology now is ready to integrate recent genetic and neuroscience knowledge and methods, I think it would be very wise to not uncritical go through the mistakes that have be done in other disciplines and instead learn from their hard lessons.

The frontal lobe and aggression.

Authors:
Jean R Séguin

Eur J Dev Psychol 2009 Jan;6(1):100-119

Université de Montréal, Montréal, Québec, and Centre de Recherche Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Ste-Justine, Montréal, Québec, Canada.

Frontal lesions often lead to psychosocial problems. It is not surprising that frontal lobe dysfunctions have been proposed to underlie antisocial behaviour in individuals without apparent lesions. However, physical aggression and violence have never been systematically related to acquired lesions. Read More

The perception of facial expressions in newborns.

Eur J Dev Psychol 2007 Mar 3;4(1):2-13. Epub 2007 May 3.

University of Padua, Italy, and Birkbeck College, University of London, UK.

The ability of newborns to discriminate and respond to different emotional facial expressions remains controversial. We conducted three experiments in which we tested newborns' preferences, and their ability to discriminate between neutral, fearful, and happy facial expressions, using visual preference and habituation procedures. In the first two experiments, no evidence was found that newborns discriminate, or show a preference between, a fearful and a neutral face. Read More
