Professor Dieter Wolke has received the 2020 Award from the BPS for Distinguished Contributions to British Developmental Psychology

The Distinguished Contributions Award is presented by the BPS Developmental Psychology Section to the candidate who has made substantial contributions to research in Developmental Psychology or through Developmental Psychology to wider society.

Dieter's research investigates why some children and adolescents develop mental health or social problems and others don’t. He has therefore investigated the consequences of being born preterm and early regulatory problems such as excessive crying or poor sleep from birth into adulthood. Furthermore, he studies how sibling or peer bullying and parenting alters developmental outcome. The award will be presented at the BPS Developmental Psychology Section Annual Conference 2020 in Sheffield in September 2020.

Previous winners include: Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Professor Dorothy Bishop, Professor Annette Kamiloff-Smiht and Professor Bruce Hood.

Congratulations Dieter!
