Celebrating Researcher Success

Doctoral researchers' study reveals new link in research into the behaviour of children and the way parents work together  

Congratulations to School of Psychology doctoral researcher Rachel Latham, who featured in a Sussex Bulletin news item last month after presenting her research findings at the annual conference of the British Psychological Society.

Rachels' study examined parental perceptions of co-parent support in association with their children's behaviour, and distinguished between the perceptions of mothers and fathers. Few previous studies into the behaviour of children and the way parents work together have made this distinction, but Rachels’ study found that children are more likely to display troublesome behaviour in families in which the father reports feeling unsupported. For mothers, feeling unsupported by their partners did not relate to their childs' behaviour.

Share your successes

If you have a story of doctoral researcher success to share, either an outcome for your own research or of a friend/colleagues, we would love to hear from you

Perhaps you, or a doctoral researcher at Sussex you know, has recently been awarded funding, received a special award or prize, given a high profile conference presentation, been mentioned in the media, had a paper published in an important journal, been involved in a public engagement activity….

If so, send us through the details so we can share and celebrate these successes in the next issue of Doctoral Connections
