In collaboration with colleagues in China, the US, and Japan, we are conducting cross-cultural studies of the development of verbal deception and truth telling. When values regarding such matters as modesty, patriotism, friendship, etc. collide with honesty, what decisions do children and youth make?
With a different methodology we are studying thriving in early childhood, the transition to school, adolescence and older adulthood in diverse locations around the globe. We have developed specifically for these investigations, a “Day in the Life” ecological procedure wherein we film one full waking day of a participant’s life in their homes, schools and communities. Our book, ‘International perspectives on early childhood research: A day in the life’ was published in 2010 by Palgrave Macmillan and translated into Italian in 2015 and a new book in Portuguese reporting on the use of the methodology is in press (2018).
We continue to examine gender as a factor in youth perspectives on healthy and unhealthy intimate relationships.
Our newest research examines collaborative, reciprocal learning of Indigenous-inspired themes by non-Indigenous children.
