Self-regulation and moral development in a social context
I study moral development within the family, with a special focus on lying: how and when do parents lie to their children and does lying also influence children's development? In addition, I investigate why some children find it more difficult to behave according to the norms and values of their family, school and society, and how emotion regulation problems are passed on from generation to generation. For this, I often make use of video observations of behaviour. As an observation expert, I was involved in the development of the Beats portal, a platform to collaborate with video data and annotate videos.
