Research interests

Currently, I am researching the concept of co-regulation which in my case refers to warm, receptive, and supportive interactions between caregivers and children which provide guidance and modulation of the child’s emotions, behaviours and thoughts. My research focuses on caregivers as parents, as well as teachers at schools.
