Family Processes

In one way or another, the family is at the center of almost all of Professor Repetti's research. The papers included here focus on stress and coping processes in the family, parenting and marital interaction, child development in the context of the family. Methods include daily report studies, longitudinal studies, and ethnographic methods.
