UPSIDE Team at UNC-Chapel Hill
Welcome to the Understanding and Promoting Self-Regulation Intervention across Development Team!
The UPSIDE Team conducts interdisciplinary research that develops, implements, and evaluates self-regulation interventions that promote resilience for children and youth across the developmental spectrum from early childhood through young adulthood, with particular focus on youth who face chronic adversity. The team has developed a mindfulness-based intervention for middle and high school students called Be CALM (Cool Attentive, Logical, and Mature) and is guided by a theoretical model of co-regulation developed by PI Murray in collaboration with the Office of the Administration for Children and Families. Other team research aims to increase understanding of emotional wellbeing in adolescents in the context of stress using innovative methods like ecological momentary assessment (EMA).
