        Departmental Seminar: "Mental health outcomes and predictors of bullying victimization: what can we learn from genetically informed designs?", Dr Jean Baptiste Pigault
        H1.48 Humanities Annex

        Host: Professor Dieter Wolke

        Title: "Mental health outcomes and predictors of bullying victimization: what can we learn from genetically informed designs?"

        Abstract:

        Extensive research on bullying victimization has shown its widespread and long-lasting associations with adverse outcomes, including mental health difficulties. Less research has been conducted using genetically informed designs, which can help us to strengthen causal inference (Pingault et al., 2018, Nature Reviews Genetics). Here I will be presenting findings from a programme of research aiming to capitalize on such designs to better understand risk factors and outcomes of bullying victimization. In particular, I will be presenting results from twin studies of bullying and cyberbullying victimization as well as polygenic score studies. I will then discuss possible theoretical implications regarding prevention strategies in the field.

        Biog:

        Dr. Pingault aims to delineate causal pathways from early risk factors to mental health difficulties in childhood and adolescence. To this end, he studies the influences of genetic and environmental risk factors on the development of a variety of mental health difficulties. His team adopts an interdisciplinary approach building on several disciplines including developmental psychopathology, epidemiological psychiatry and biology. In particular, they implement innovative methods for causal inference in big datasets, building on statistical innovation and genetically informed designs. In collaboration with national and international colleagues, Dr. Pingault and his team then seek to further characterize these causal pathways by investigating possible underlying biological mechanisms (e.g. cognitive profiles, epigenetics).

        Special Departmental Seminar - "inspiring women": "Future thinking and delay discounting in children and adolescents", Professor Teresa McCormack, Queen's University Belfast
        H1.48 Humanities Annex

        Professor Teresa McCormack, Queen's University Belfast

        Host: Dr Michaela Gummerum

        Title: Future thinking and delay discounting in children and adolescents

        Abstract:

        The difficulties that children and adolescents have with delaying gratification is well-documented. Recent research with adults has suggested that episodic future thinking skills – the ability to imagine future personal events - may play a role in facilitating prudent choice. However, there is almost no developmental evidence linking episodic future thinking skills to children’s performance on delay discounting tasks. In this talk I will present a series of correlational studies examining whether there is such a link, with a wide age range of participants (from 4-year-olds to adolescents and adults). I will also describe a parallel set of studies that have examined whether priming future thinking can affect discounting of future rewards in this age range. The findings suggest that a link between episodic future thinking and delay discounting emerges only in adolescence when future thinking skills are well-established. However, we found some evidence to suggest that delay discounting in children is linked to their judgments about how far away points in time in the future feel to them. These findings have implications for how the role of future thinking in facilitating prudent choice is conceptualized.

        Bookable workshop: Parliament for Researchers
        Wolfson Research Exchange

        Organised by Lesley Chikoore.

        This workshop gives an overview of the UK Parliament and how Parliament uses research, and covers ways to work with the institution including details on Select Committees, legislative scrutiny, the House of Commons and House of Lords libraries, and POST. It also includes discussion of how to communicate research in a policy context. The session will be interactive and practical. You will leave with an understanding of how research is used in the UK Parliament, and able to identify opportunities to feed your research into Parliament’s work. This training is delivered by UK Parliament’s Knowledge Exchange unit.
