INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSIONS TO THE

11th Biennial SSHD Conference

Stress, Resilience, and Character Development.

Theme Description

Stress may have long-term implications for a number of areas in the developmental sciences, including personality, family dynamics, cognition, health and well-being.  However, there are many different types of resilience, which may mitigate the effects of stress, and even promote growth, including character development.

The 11th Biennial SSHD Conference welcomes submissions examining this year’s theme, Stress, Resilience, and Character Development.  However, submissions are not restricted to this theme – symposia and posters are welcome on any aspect of development, at any stage of the life span or life course.  We especially welcome submissions incorporating diverse scientific frameworks, including interdisciplinary scholarship.
