Paulo Graziano

Dr. Graziano is Director of the S.E.L.F.-Regulation Lab, where research focuses on the role of children’s self-regulation as it pertains to School Readiness, Early Intervention, Learning, and Fitness (S.E.L.F.). He is particularly interested in how parental and environmental factors (e.g., teachers/classroom) may influence or moderate the impact of regulatory processes on adaptive functioning outcomes. Special emphasis on the role of physiological (i.e., RSA suppression) and neurocognitive processes in the development of psychopathology (emphasis on disruptive behavior disorders) as well as pediatric obesity. A large portion of his research focuses on developing and examining early interventions (e.g., behavioral parent training, summer programs) that can target children’s self-regulation skills and subsequent adaptive and health related outcomes. Dr. Graziano has authored or co-authored a number of papers and his work has been supported by both federal grants (e.g., Institute of Education Sciences) and local agencies (e.g., The Children’s Trust).
