Thank you for your interest in our lab! In the SELF Regulation Lab, we examine various dimension of self-regulation across multiple ages and developmental domains with a focus on how we can improve intervention strategies to support this important construct. We study how preschoolers regulate their cognition and behavior in the classroom to maintain attention and cooperate with peers. We investigate how environmental risk factors impact children’s self-regulatory processes and the implications for adolescence social functioning and well-being. We address children’s health behaviors, such as regulatory eating behaviors, nutrition, and the role of parents and caregivers in establishing these patterns. We also highlight mindfulness as an important strategy for enhancing self-regulation within schools and across diverse communities.
