Keynote Speaker: The keynote address was given by Professor Gordon Harold from the University of Sussex. It focused on the importance of longitudinal studies across the life course. Professor Harold’s main research interest is on the role of the family as a context for understanding children’s normal and abnormal psychological development.
Conference Presentations: Twenty-six papers were presented at the conference. These were based on Growing Up in Ireland’s Child and Infant Cohorts and covered a range of topics including health, parenting, education and socio-emotional well-being. This year’s conference also featured a methodology session which will include presentations on topics relating to the practical aspects of collecting and using data from longitudinal studies such as Growing Up in Ireland.
