Biography

Tracey Spinrad is a professor in the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics. Her research focuses on the socio-emotional development of young children, particularly the relations of children’s self-regulation abilities (i.e., effortful control) to children’s social adjustment. Further, much of her work has examined the role that parenting plays in the development of young children’s moral development, altruism, and empathy. Spinrad has published numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and chapters on the contributions of self-regulation and parenting to children’s moral behavior and social adjustment.
