Dr. Jeanne Brooks-Gunn recipient of the 2017 Society for Social Work and Research Excellence in Research Award

Dr. Jeanne Brooks-Gunn became the recipient of the 2017 Society for Social Work and Research Excellence in Research Award for the article entitled “Spanking and Children’s Externalizing Behavior Across the First Decade of Life: Evidence for Transactional Processes.” In conferring the award, the Society recognized her outstanding social work research that represents the highest of scientific standards that seeks to advance knowledge in the field.  This study examined the transactional associations between spanking and externalizing behavior across the first decade of life, examining not only how spanking relates to externalizing behavior leading up to the important transition to adolescence, but whether higher levels of externalizing lead to more spanking over time as well. This article which appears in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence can be viewed here.
