Poster 177: Kathryn Wylie – Differences Between Mother and Peer Listeners in the Encouragement of Perspective-Taking

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Monisha Pasupathi

Putting yourself in another person’s shoes (“perspective-taking”) is associated with a broad range of positive outcomes, but it is unclear how it functions in relation to anger. We examined differences between how mothers and peers responded to experiences of anger from 12- to 14-year-old participants and found not only that mothers encourage their kids to perspective-take more often than friends do, but also that participants were more likely to listen to their mothers than to their friends.
