“Problem Behavior Trajectories and Resilience at Age Six in Children Born Preterm”

February 7, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

About the Talk: Children born preterm are at risk for a host of problems including developmental delays, intellectual disability, attention problems, and behavior problems. However, there is great variability in preterm infant outcomes, especially as they grow older. Findings will be presented from a longitudinal study of 176 preterm infants that followed children and families from the NICU stay until children were six years of age. Diverse developmental trajectories in behavior problems as well as resilience are emphasized.

About the Speaker: Dr. Poehlmann-Tynan’s research focuses on the role of family relationships in the development of resilience in high risk infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. She is interested in how emerging relationships interact with biological and environmental vulnerabilities in shaping the cognitive and social emotional development of children who experience a range of risks. Dr. Poehlmann-Tynan’s research emphasizes how children and parents make contributions to their relationships with each other, rather than emphasizing parental characteristics like much of the existing attachment research. Her findings bridge attachment theory with ecologically-based transactional developmental theories.

For Further Information: The Early Childhood Seminar Series provides a format for interaction between IDDRC and UCEDD faculty, staff and trainees to inform both research and practice. Through this seminar series, IDDRC investigators studying issues in early childhood will have the opportunity to discuss a current project taking place in their laboratory. Following each presentation, a UCEDD staff member will moderate a guided discussion with the audience and investigator to explore applications of the research and future topics for study. This seminar series qualifies as approved training for MCH LEND trainees and provides continuing education hours for ECE professionals.
