Dr. Esther Leerkes (Human Development & Family Studies) received a UNCG Research Excellence Award at the 2012 Faculty & Staff Excellence Awards ceremony. In this video created by a Media Studies student, Leerkes speaks about her research: ”My goal really is to understand what promotes children’s healthy development, and the outcomes that I am interested in are social, emotional. What is it that helps children learn to regulate their own emotions? What is it that promotes a close, healthy relationship with their parents, which we know if protective for their later development?”
