Child Study Center and Social Development Lab

The Child Study Center and Social Development Lab’s research focuses on developmental pathways to risk and resilience, particularly within early development from pregnancy to early childhood. For example, investigating prenatal exposure to drugs and the development of psychopathology.

Dr. Stephanie Godleski’s lab studies developmental pathways to risk and resilience, especially within early development from pregnancy to early childhood. In particular, they investigate how parent and family influences (e.g., parental substance use, discipline, etc) impact social and emotional development - such as externalizing behavioral problems in childhood (e.g., aggression). They also develop and assess prevention and intervention programs for pregnancy and early childhood.
