Short description of research interests (max 100 words)

Parentification – how children are forced to take on roles and responsibilities of adults, disproportionate to what is socially and biologically expected of them. The focus of my research is primarily on emotional neglect and how the lack of ability or presence of parents can have life long debilitating effects on the mental health of their children.
