      Intergenerational Transmission of Risk for Psychopathology

      Intergenerational Transmission of Risk for Psychopathology SPEAKERS Ian H. Gotlib, PhD - Dr. Gotlib is the David Starr Jordan Professor and Director of the Stanford Neurodevelopment, Affect, and Psychopathology (SNAP) Laboratory at Stanford University. In his research, Dr. Gotlib examines psychobiological factors that place individuals at increased risk for developing depression and engaging in suicidal behaviors, as well as processes that are protective in this context. More specifically, Dr. Gotlib examines neural, cognitive, social, endocrinological, and genetic factors in depressed individuals and applies findings from these investigations to the study of predictors of depression in children at risk for this disorder. In related projects, Dr. Gotlib is also examining the differential effects of early life stress on the trajectories of neurodevelopment in boys and girls through puberty in an effort to explain the increased prevalence of depression and suicidal behaviors in girls in adolescence. Finally, Dr. Gotlib is extending this work to the study of brain function and structure, endocrine function, and behaviors in neonates and infants being raised in suboptimal environments. Lucy King - Ms. King is a PhD candidate in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University where she works with Dr. Ian Gotlib. Her research integrates the areas of affective science and child development with a focus on how early experiences influence risk for mental health difficulties. Broadly, her graduate studies have focused on 1) improving methods for the measurement of the early environment, including both in utero and postnatally, through the use of multimodal assessments, 2) examining how different dimensions of caregiving in infancy relate to biobehavioral development and identifying potential treatment targets for the perinatal period, and 3) characterizing the effects of early adversity on the development of stress response systems.  The MCHRI Seminar Series highlight compelling clinical topics, innovative research, and the latest developments in maternal and child health. The series provides a unique platform for engaging in conversations and collaborating with other researchers across the community. The seminars series is open to all, including faculty, staff, trainees, postdocs, and all members of the research community. Seats are limited, and reservation is required. Limited lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch to the event. Check out more MCHRI Seminar Series! Questions about registration?
