COVID 19 Social Impact; Relations between Social Cognition & Social-Emotional Health

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Social Impacts

Purposes: The purpose of the current research is to examine relationships between how children, and their parents, reason about other people (i.e. referred to as 'social cognition') and various aspects of social-emotional health and well-being. We are also interested in exploring how recent and ongoing changes (e.g. those resulting from the social distancing measures or other consequences of the pandemic) may influence various aspects of the parent's and child's social functioning and social-emotional health (broadly construed). This research is important for identifying factors that contribute to one's social-emotional health and will lay the critical groundwork for future research designed at promoting better health and well-being in parents and children.
