#Parenting Interdisciplinary Workshop Event on Monday, February 11, 2019, 3:30-5:00pm

Speaker: Dr. Brenda Volling

#Parenting will be hosting another very much anticipated event on Monday, February 11, 2019, 3:30-5:00pm with Brenda L. Volling, PhD, Lois Wladis Hoffman Collegiate Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan. Dr. Volling's research focuses on the social and emotional development of infants and young children and the role of family relationships in facilitating children’s developmental outcomes. She is particularly interested in the role of fathers, the quality of sibling relationships, and parent-infant attachment. Her current research focuses on changes in the family and the older child’s adjustment after the birth of a second child (the Family Transitions Study), postpartum depression and infant attachment, the development of young children’s prosocial behavior, and sibling jealousy. Dr. Volling will give the following presentation:

Title: Fathering in the 21st century and what it means for children

Abstract: This talk will focus on the changing roles of fathers over the past several decades from the primary bread-winner to the more involved fatherhood "ideal", as well as how fathers' relationships with their children affect children's development. Dr. Volling will also discuss how cultural differences in social policies relevant to parental leave, and how technology and social media, has shaped parenting experiences in the 21st century.

The event will be held at the School of Social Work Building, Room 3661. Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP here so we can get an accurate headcount for food!
