    The development of social behavior in childhood has a lasting effect on the life course in multiple domains, such as friendships, relationships, school, work, offending, and mental health. Development of disruptive behavior problems entails mayor harm and costs for children, their environments, and society.

    Our group(s) study how behavior problems develop and how they can be prevented or treated. Key to our approach is understanding and changing the mechanisms that maintain behavior problems, such as social information processing, family interaction patterns, and peer social networks.  

    This approach does not only incease our understanding of social development, but directly contributes to more effective (preventive) interventions that are increasingly used by children, parents, teachers, and clinicians, with lasting benefits. 

    Current key projects include a.o.
