Doris Duke Dissertation Fellowship for the Promotion of Child Well-Being: 

Funding awarded from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago to support dissertation research for two years. 

Project title: The Protective Role of the Caregiving Relationship in Child Care for Infants and Toddlers from High Risk Families

The goal of this dissertation is to provide theoretical and empirical evidence that caregiving experiences in child care promote children’s emotion regulation and serve as a protective factor for infants and toddlers experiencing negative parenting behaviors, high rates of physical and verbal punishment, and dysfunctional parent-child interactions at home. Additionally, this dissertation will explore children’s differential susceptibility to home and child care caregiving experiences. Secondary data analyses will be conducted with the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project (EHSRE), a longitudinal evaluation of EHS participating and EHS eligible families. The present analyses will be conducted with the subsample of families who participated in center-based child care, utilizing longitudinal data from 14-month, 24-month, 36-month (child age) time points.

Dissertation title: Risk & Resilience Low-Income Families: Linking Contextual Risks, Parenting Style, Child Socioemotional Development and Maltreatment.

The aim of my dissertation is to examine trajectories of parenting styles across early childhood among low-income families, and then evaluate mechanisms of risk and resilience, including enrollment in Early Head Start, that promote children’s socioemotional development and risk for child maltreatment. This dissertation research utilizes secondary data analyses of Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project (EHSRE), a longitudinal impact study of EHS-eligible and EHS-enrolled families. Presently, I am preparing the data for the first analysis: predicting membership in particularly classes or styles of parenting across time based upon sociodemographic characteristics, previous class membership and enrollment in Early Head Start.
