Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. think critically about the influence of parental characteristics on preschoolers in order to develop stronger screening and intervention methods.
  2. learn about the individual and cultural nuances that influence the results of a universal screening measure from both parent and teacher informants.
  3. consider the impact of considering risk factors and protective/promotive factors in assessment and intervention.

Description

The most proximal and influential social setting is the child’s family when considering human development (Bronfenbrenner, 1986). This study will investigate parental characteristics, specifically parental risk factors from a sample of preschoolers in Central California who participated in universal screening for behavioral and emotional risk to understand the influence of parental risks on child outcomes. The presence of multiple parental risks will be examined to understand how they contribute to the prediction of child outcomes.
