Inaugural Lecture Veroni Eichelsheim | Intergenerational Continuity of Deviant Behavior

Why does deviant behavior concentrate in certain families? What mechanisms are at play? And what explanations exist for the occurrence of intergenerational resilience? These questions are at the heart of Veroni Eichelsheim's research (NSCR/RUG). 14 September she organizes a symposium about Intergenerational Continuity of Deviant Behavior, and on 15 September she will deliver her inaugural lecture at the University of Groningen.

Veroni Eichelsheim, senior researcher at the NSCR and endowed professor at the University of Groningen, holds the chair of 'Intergenerational Continuity of Deviant Behavior'. Within this chair, she investigates deviant developmental trajectories across multiple generations and also examines interventions for these families.

Intergenerational transmission of deviant behavior

Eichelsheim’s research focuses on the development of children and adolescents, parenting, problem behavior and delinquency, children of criminal parents, and the intergenerational transmission of deviant behavior. For this reason, the chair is housed within the unit of Developmental Psychology.

Effective ways to break patterns

Eichelsheim is pleased with the collaboration between the University of Groningen and the NSCR. 'Interdisciplinary collaboration is indispensable for researching intergenerational patterns of deviant behavior and working together with practice and policy partners to find effective ways to break these patterns. By establishing this chair, I hope to make a contribution.'
