My current work is concerned with cognition and motivation in students from preschool and elementary to high school and college age. Research from the SEARCH institute on positive development in youth provides one of the bases for our current projects. Several populations are included, i.e. university students, students with learning difficulties, and varsity student athletes. Another project involves analyses of the content of the journals in child development, in which we have trends from 1930 to the early 2000’s. Current research focuses on characteristics of the children studied as well as content areas.
I am a past Executive Officer of the Society for Research in Child Development (1989-2007).
