My thesis examines how maternal and peer emotion socialization processes may predict adolescents later social experiences (like bullying, victimization, and prosocial behavior) in a longitudinal sample of 200 middle-school age youth. These findings may generate important implications for how adaptive and maladaptive emotion socialization practices in both parent-child and adolescent peer interactions may lead to later adolescent social adjustment difficulties.
