New theoretical review on parent-adolescent relationships

My new theoretical review on parent-adolescent emotion dynamics is now online in the Journal of Research on Adolescence. I build on the work of many others (including Emily Butler, Tom Hollenstein, Isabel Granic, and Marc Lewis) and forward a dynamic systems model for how development through the parent-adolescent relationship proceeds at multiple time scales.

I also write about this work in the recent issue of Emotion Researcher.
