Social, Emotional, and Physical Development
These studies examine the mental and physical health, self-perceptions, attitudes and academic performance of children ranging from elementary school-age through adolescence. In particular, they ask how development in these areas might be influenced by the primary social contexts in which children grow, peer relationships and the family.
