Stephanie Jones: Executive Function and Self-Regulation in Context: The Role of Stress and Poverty


This presentation provides an overview of executive function and self-regulation with particular emphasis on (1) their developmental and neuroscience underpinnings, and (2) research discussing the effects of stress and poverty on their development. The presentation will review strategies for skill development in children and adults whose executive functioning and self-regulation have been compromised or challenged by high-stress situations. The goals for the session include describing executive function and self-regulation skills in children and adults, presenting research on how stress and poverty influence these skills, and identifying strategies and opportunities for intervention.
