The Enduring Legacy of Early Interpersonal Experiences

Section A, Location 14

Professor Roisman has spent his distinguished career extending into adulthood landmark longitudinal studies of human development that span the life-course. Leveraging these unique datasets and innovative statistical methods, Roisman’s contributions reveal: (a) in which domains, (b) through what mechanisms, and (c) for whom early relationship experiences endure in their impacts. His current work is illuminating how childhood experiences support or undermine adults’ physical health via studies that disambiguate the effects of social experiences from genetics.
