Mentoring Philosophy:

Marissa Diener is a developmental psychologist whose research addresses complex and challenging social issues that face youth and impact their well-being. My research assumes that children's characteristics, such as neurodiversity, as well as parents' behavior and expectations, parent-child relationships, and the person-family-in-context are important for children's development. My research involves two approaches: traditional methods as well as community-based participatory designs.
