Regulation problems

Regulation problems such as crying, feeding and sleeping problems are common in the first year of life. This working group is concerned with the long-term consequences of regulation problems and their significance for the development of mental disorders. A better understanding of the interplay of child and parental characteristics in the development and treatment of regulation problems is the focus of our research.
