Suor, Jennifer H.; Sturge-Apple, Melissa L.; Davies, Patrick T.; Cicchetti, Dante – Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, 2017

Sturge-Apple, Melissa L.; Davies, Patrick T.; Martin, Meredith J.; Cicchetti, Dante; Hentges, Rochelle F. – Developmental Psychology, 2012

Guided by this model, we examined whether children's behavioral strategies for coping…

Kochanska, Grazyna; Goffin, Kathryn C. – Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, 2017
Suor et al. (2017) present a compelling new evolutionary framework that offers an alternative interpretation of the well-established findings of cognitive deficits in children raised in harsh early environments. They argue that such findings do not convey a complete picture of those children's cognitive development, because children's cognition…
