Kristen Foster Peairs, Graduate Student    Edit

Kristen Foster Peairs

Research Summary:
I am a clinical psychology graduate student generally interested in the social world of children and adolescents. Currently I am active in four programs of peer relations research, examining:
1) the social world of gifted adolescents
2) instant messaging services and adolescent peer relationships
3) concurrent and long-term adjustment of overt and relational aggression and victimization in European American and African American girls
4) the efficacy of using natural peer leaders as substance use prevention agents
