Michael Pluess, psychologist and associate professor of developmental psychology at Queen Mary University of London, led the inaugural CYFS Signature Event April 11. Video is now available of his presentation, “Individual Differences in Environmental Sensitivity.”
Pluess examined why some people are more affected than others by the same experiences — specifically, why some are more vulnerable to adverse experiences in their lives as a function of inherent risk characteristics, such as personality or genes.
The CYFS Signature Event series is designed to share research that advances learning and development at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Each event will feature a research presentation aimed at cross-disciplinary audiences.
