YCSC Grand Rounds: Flourishing families – Exploring the correlates, causes, and consequences of parents' well-being

Yale Child Study Center

In this presentation, an overview of the presenter's research program will be provided, exploring the correlates, causes, and consequences of parents’ well-being. Across multiple studies relying on experimental, daily experience, and longitudinal designs, this research demonstrates the importance of understanding and promoting parents’ well-being, not only to improve the lives of parents, but for their families as well. The learning objectives for this session are to:

  1. Describe the three components of subjective well-being and meaning in life, respectively
  2. Discuss why some parents are more or less happy than others
  3. Identify the benefits of parents' well-being for parent-child relationships and family functioning

This will be a hybrid session, held live and in person from the Cohen Auditorium and simulcast via Zoom.
