Funding for the study of self-regulation

Our doctoral student Jouni Veijalainen has been granted by Jenny and Antti Wihuri foundation with a 24 000 euro funding. The grant is for Jouni’s doctoral dissertation “Children’s self-regulation skills in day care”. Jouni’s data is from the 2015 data collection. In his dissertation Jouni combines children’s evaluated self-regulation skills with the observed activities, which makes it possible to study how the self-regulation skills are related to everyday activities and peer contacts in day care centres. Self-regulative skills are essential when children get practice to steer their own and also others life for a sustainable well-being.
