Description

High family conflict leads to numerous deleterious health outcomes across ontogeny and costs $3.6 trillion, or 4.21% of global gross domestic product, annually. In this presentation, Dr. Rothenberg will explore how high family conflict can be passed from one generation to the next within families around the world, how these intergenerational cycles can be prevented, and how such preventive interventions can be implemented in medically underserved communities worldwide. First, he will identify two distinct developmental pathways that explain the emergence of intergenerational family conflict: the “externalizing” and “depressive” pathways, and consider the extent to which these pathways demonstrate continuity in nine nations around the world. Second, he will demonstrate how evidence-based behavioral parent training interventions can be deployed in early childhood to prevent the emergence of intergenerational family conflict and psychopathology in a variety of different cultural groups. Third, he will consider how the use of novel implementation strategies (e.g., embedding prevention programs within community institutions, utilizing technology-enhanced interventions) can ensure that evidence-based prevention programs are provided in medically underserved communities around the world. In so doing, he will strive to demonstrate how insights from developmental psychopathology and prevention science can be integrated to change the lives of families across generations and around the world.

Dr. Rothenberg is a candidate for the Population Heath Initiative Joint Hire in Psychology and Global Health. These lectures are free. No registration needed.

Q&A and light refreshment following.
