Jennifer E. Lansford, PhD. Research Professor, Center for Child and Family Policy, Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke University, North Carolina. Her research focuses on understanding how cultural contexts moderate the influence of parents on trajectories of social and behavioral development from childhood to adulthood. She leads the Parenting Across Cultures Project, an NICHD-funded ongoing prospective study of parents and their children from 13 cultural groups in 9 countries (China, Colombia, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Philippines, Sweden, Thailand, and the United States) that has investigated how acceptance and rejection are related to cultural norms and to other aspects of parenting and adjustment during childhood and adolescence.
