Melissa LippoldA Presentation by Melissa Lippold, PhD

Parent-child relationships are not stagnant–rather they ebb and flow, changing from day to day. Most studies on parenting use global reports, which capture overall perceptions of parenting, but miss the dynamic, changing nature of these relationships. In this talk, we will explore how studies on shorter time scales, such as daily diary studies, may shed new light on parent-child relationships and their linkages to adolescent health and well-being. We will also discuss intervention implications.

Melissa Lippold is an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at UNC Chapel Hill. She studies parent-child relationships during adolescence and their linkages with youth behavioral and physical health. She holds a PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from Penn State and a dual Master’s degree in Social Work and Public Policy from The University of Chicago.
