Shelmeshia Hill, a McNair Scholar, explains her work at the Virginia Tech Summer Research Symposium


Shelmeshia Hill explains her work at the Virginia Tech Summer Research Symposium. Shelmeshia, a McNair Scholar, worked with a team of researchers from Julie Dunsmore’s Social Development Lab and Tom Ollendick’s Child Study Center on a project examining parent-child emotional communication in families seeking treatment for their child’s oppositional behavior. This project was conducted with funding from Virginia Tech’s Institute for Society, Culture, and Environment and the National Institute of Mental Health. Research in the Social Development Lab focuses on parents’ socialization of emotions and children’s socio-emotional competence.
