Profile

Rianne Kok is an assistant professor at the Department of Psychology, Education and Child Studies since March 2015, specialized in clinical child and family studies. 

She graduated at the University of Amsterdam in Clinical Neuropsychology and received her PhD at the Centre for Child and Family Studies at Leiden University. Her research is focused on the development of self-regulation in early childhood, in both typically developing children as well as in high-risk families, characterized by parental psychopathology or socio-economic difficulties. She studied the role of environmental factors, e.g., prenatal stress, sensitivity, and discipline, in interplay with biological factors, e.g., brain development and…

Rianne Kok is an assistant professor at the Department of Psychology, Education and Child Studies since March 2015, specialized in clinical child and family studies. 

She graduated at the University of Amsterdam in Clinical Neuropsychology and received her PhD at the Centre for Child and Family Studies at Leiden University. Her research is focused on the development of self-regulation in early childhood, in both typically developing children as well as in high-risk families, characterized by parental psychopathology or socio-economic difficulties. She studied the role of environmental factors, e.g., prenatal stress, sensitivity, and discipline, in interplay with biological factors, e.g., brain development and genetics, in determining the self-regulatory capacity of young children. She is involved in two studies on parenting capacities of high-risk mothers in relation to the development of self-regulation capacities of their infants, in collaboration with the Erasmus Medical Center. With the 2016 EUR Fellowship grant she conducts an innovative study on child regulation in social contexts, using direct observations of behavior of children and social partners at home and in schools. With a unique study design and sophisticated observation tools, she studies how social interactions shape regulation in children and determine early school success, in order to provide practical advice for kindergarten teachers on how to guide children in making a successful transition to formal schooling. She is specialized in using observational paradigms and coding schemes to study the interaction and (dyadic) regulation of parents and children. 

Rianne Kok coordinates courses on Child Behavior- and Learning Problems (Bachelor level), Attunement between caregiving and education contexts (Bachelor level) and Advanced Diagnostics (Master level). Moreover, she is involved in the development and coordination of the academic writing skills curriculum.
